The Grime artiste Stormzy has been featured on the front cover of the top male magazine GQ. This followed his win at the recently held GQ Men of the Year Awards in London.

He was handed the Best Solo Artist prize at the event by Labour Leader and former Prime Ministerial candidate Jeremy Corbyn.

The star was part of the #Grime4Corbyn campaign before the general election this year which saw major grime artists publicly backing the Labour leader.

Stormzy seemed to enjoy himself at the ceremony and said he’d even managed to get a selfie with Ronan Keating from the boyband Boyzone.

He tweeted: “At these events I just run up to everyone and beg it man just met ronan keaton are you mad.”

While accepting his award, Stormzy also criticised Prime Minister Theresa May.

“I’m so happy to be here, blessed in a room full of talent, we got so much black excellence in this room as well Tinie Tempah my brother, Anthony Joshua, Skepta… so incredible to be here with everyone.


“Big up Jeremy Corbyn. I do want to use this to say Theresa May is a paigon and you know what we’re doing right now, yeah, trust me. Yeah, it’s awkward innit when I say that.”

Pele was given the inspiration award by England manager Gareth Southgate.
