    Britain 100% racist ???
    Stormzy is such a pathetic hypocrite.
    Calling Labour supporters racist proves he's as ignorant as shit...
    Another ungrateful rich celebrity spewing disdain on the fawning public that made him famous...🤮🤮🤮

      Thats not what he said, the news outlets twisted it. The interviewer asked him is there racism in the UK? He said yes, 100%. Not "there is a 100% racism in UK."

    Excruciatingly difficult to understand man. There's far too much dancing in his explanation regarding Maya Jama, because of his embarrassment. I don't think ownership is full with man. Don't get me wrong, he's put out his apology and statements of how he screwed up, but I still don't see ownership. Ownership takes a different tact, and uses far fewer words.
    Stay single and married to the music, my dude.

    Stormzy is the most genuine, down to earth guy. Always touches on such important topics and uses his influence to to good. He deserves it all and the album was a masterpiece. Can’t wait to see you in New Zealand

    Stormzy life is a journey and on that journey you will be learning, so continue to learn and grow and enjoy, no matter what age, I’m double your age and still learning. Nothing wrong with that. All the best 🙏🏾

    Lessons is a song that hopefully will be a wake up call for all the bruddas out there that have a good woman, a queen and think twice about straying. It's hard to find a good woman and it's also hard to find a good man , and if you are lucky enough to find that someone don't take that quest and blessing for granted.

    I like how some sounds never change. It's been a while since i've listened/watched radio 1/1xtra but that intro has been the same for at least 10 years now. And the sound Dotty used to introduce Stormzy hasn't changed either. Mad.
