Stormzy Performs At Fans Dad's Funeral
(AllHipHop News) British rapper Stormzy performed at one of his fans' father's funeral after receiving a request on Twitter.
Nas Bockarie's dad died on December 8th, the same day he graduated as a high school physical education teacher.
After his father's death, Nas reached out to Stormzy, 24, to ask him if he could perform his track "Blinded By Your Grace" at the funeral, as it was a family favorite.
"Bro my Dad passed away on the day of my graduation last week Friday," the fan wrote in a tweet to the grime star. "Our favorite song of yours was blinded by your grace. Would love it if you could preform (sic) this at his funeral next Thursday 21st December. Don't worry if you can't, I just thought I'd try my luck."
Stormzy, real name Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Owuo, Jr. responded by asking Nas to message him privately, an act which the fan wrote rendered him "speechless."
Yesterday (December 21, Nas's friend Deji posted a picture of Stormzy singing at the funeral on Twiter, writing, "Massive respect for @Stormzy1 for honoring this...God Bless You."
Performing at the memorial is not the rapper's only generous act this Christmas, as last week he joined the actor Idris Elba in donning a Santa outfit to visit wards at two children's hospitals in London.
