Stormzy and MNEK

MNEK labelled the move as "foul".

Stormzy has publicly apologised to MNEK after appearing to replace the singer during his live ITV performance on Saturday night, without MNEK's consent.

The Grime MC performed his track 'Blinded By Your Grace Part 2', which originally features the 22-year-old singer.

However, MNEK took to Twitter to describe how he returned home to find out that his part was instead being performed by fellow singer Labrinth without his knowledge.

At his replacement, the shocked singer tweeted: "sh*t's foul".

Fans initially thought that MNEK was unable to perform with the rapper, but later suspected that Labrinth had been picked instead because he's signed to Simon Cowell's label, Syco.

In response, Stormzy attempted to clarify the situation in a series of tweets, explaining that the incident was down to miscommunication.

The rapper shared a screen-grab of a text conversation he had with his management, asking them to inform MNEK of the situation prior to the performance.

MNEK is yet to respond publicly to Stormzy's apology.
