One of the best parts of contemporary fandom is that artists are truly only a click away. A member of English grime rapper Stormzy’s hive found that out this week in the best way possible. The fan in question, Nas Bockarie, tweeted at Stormzy: “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 [sic] this at his funeral next Thursday 21st December. Don’t worry if you can’t, I just thought I’d try my luck #Hopeful.”
The tearful tale caught the rapper’s attention and he replied back: “Follow me so I can dm ya.” It looked like the rapper might actually pull of a once-in-a-lifetime performance, and then, well, he did. Earlier today a photo of the rapper performing at the funeral made the rounds on Twitter, below:
Who knew Twitter can be used for good?
