Stormzy isn't impressed.
Stormzy has expressed his anger after being confused for new Manchester United footballer Romelu Lukaku by an Irish newspaper.
The ‘Big For Your Boots’ star was surprised to see his face on the cover of newspaper, The Herald, alongside the headline: “Lukaku is ready for work.”
Belgian striker Lukaku completed his £75m to Manchester United earlier this week.
However there were no photos of the player in his new club’s football kit, so the newspaper decided to use an old picture instead.
But instead of Lukaku, they used Stormzy – who is a Manchester United fan.
Following the huge gaffe, the Grime star took to Twitter to reveal he wasn’t impressed.
I don't find none of this funny btw don't wanna sound like the party pooper who missed the joke...— #GSAP (@Stormzy1) July 10, 2017
“I don’t find none of this funny btw,” he tweeted. “Don’t wanna sound like the party pooper who missed the joke…”
The Irish Herald has since apologised for the error via Twitter.
This is not the first time Stormzy and Romelu Lukaku have been compared, with the Grime star highlighting similarities back in 2014.

He also laughed off the similarities on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch earlier this year.
He said: "I'm not going to lie, every time I see him, I just look at it and think… yeah, you do mate."
