Stormzy performs at fan's father's funeral

Massive respect.

Stormzy has fulfilled the request of a fan who asked him to perform at his father's funeral.

Nas Bockarie reached out to the Grime MC on Twitter and explained that his father has just passed away earlier this month, on the same day as Nas' graduation.

Days after his father's passing, the secondary school PE teacher tweeted Stormzy in reply to a video of his song 'Blinded By Your Grace'.

"Bro my Dad passed away on the day of my graduation last week Friday," Nas wrote, "Our favourite song of yours was blinded by your grace."

After asking Stormzy if he could perform the song at the funeral, Stormzy replied: "Follow me so I can dm ya."

A week later, the 'Big For Your Boots' rapper performed at the funeral in a heart-warming gesture of good will.

One of Nas’s friends, Deji, captured the moment of the 24-year-old rapper singing in front of a picture of Mr Bockarie.

What a guy.
