Stormzy has performed at the funeral of a fan’s father after he “tried his luck”, sending the singer a message on Twitter.

Nas Bockarie’s dad died on the day of his graduation, and he sent a message to the grime star asking him if he could make the funeral.

Stormzy replied asking to send a direct message, or DM, and it appears he has fulfilled the bold request.

Mr Bockarie tweeted to the star: “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 perform this at his funeral next Thursday 21st December. Don’t worry if you can’t, I just thought I’d try my luck. #Hopeful.”

Friend of the recent graduate Deji shared a screenshot of the tweets, alongside a picture of the singer at the funeral.

He wrote: “Massive respect to Stormzy for honouring this…. God bless you.”

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help cover the funeral costs. The service was held in a church in Reading.

Stormzy’s representatives have been contacted for comment.
