Grealish and Stormzy have been seen together a number of times before the performance, with Stormzy even shouting Grealish out in a remix of Yaw Tog’s ‘Sore’, rapping:
“Slide in the middle like Grealish / My next hit’s bigger than my previous / Red light’s looking all greenish / Fake n****s call me Blood, I get squeamish.”
Grealish was integral to the Manchester City side during their 5-0 thrashing of Arsenal, picking up an assist.
The rapper recently unveiled his wax figure at Madam Tussauds. He’s also provided funding for 30 Black students to attend Cambridge University, alongside releasing ‘Superheroes’, a new book from his imprint #Merky Books.
