British rapper, Stormzy who won big at the just concluded MOBO Awards, did put a smile on the face of his fan whose dad’s funeral was held recently.
The fan identified as Nasir Bockarie’s father died in the Royal Berkshire Hospital on 8 December, the day Nasir graduated, and he took to Twitter to tell Stormzy that they both loved his ‘blinded by your grace’ single, and yes Stormzy performed the song at his Dad’s funeral.
His tweet read;
“Bro my Dad passed away on the day of my graduation last week Friday. Our favourite song of yours was blinded by your grace. Would love it if you could preform this at his funeral next Thursday 21st December. Don’t worry if you can’t, I just thought I’d try my luck
His cousin, Mariama Kallon, later tweeted that she was “in shock” after finding out about the star’s generosity.
“I don’t want to hear any slander about this man ever because I don’t know many people who have a soul to match his,” she wrote.
The funeral took place in Reading on 21 December and, sure enough, Stormzy kept his promise to the family, originally from Sierra Leone
