'Where's the money for Grenfell?' Stormzy slams Theresa May in ferocious rap at Brit Awards 2018 as Jeremy Corbyn hails ‘powerful’ performance
The grime star called out the Prime Minister in the middle of his performance during the glitzy ceremony at London’s O2 arena – in which he picked up two awards.
“Yo Theresa May, where’s the money for Grenfell?" he rapped, as water showered down onto him.
"What, you thought we just forgot about Grenfell? You criminals, and you’ve got the cheek to call us savages, you should do some jail time, you should pay some damages, you should burn your house down and see if you can manage this."
The Grenfell Tower fire claimed 71 lives last June after flames engulfed the 24-storey tower block in Kensington.
Mr Corbyn tweeted his praise for the "powerful performance", writing: "Congratulations @Stormzy1 for winning your first #BRIT award, and what a powerful performance. #Grenfell."
Viewers were also hugely impressed by Stormzy's unexpected rap, with some praising the south London artist for producing "the greatest moment of the awards' history".
"Seriously this is exactly what you want young people looking up to. Someone who comes from where they come from and won’t allow himself be stereotyped ," said one fan on Twitter.
