    During the performance, the rapper made several insulting references to former UK foreign secretary and current Tory leadership forerunner Boris Johnson, once even enlisting the help of the tens of thousands-strong audience to convey the message.

    The annual Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts apparently went slightly political this year during the performance of popular grime artist Stormzy.

    During the event, he performed his 2019 hit single “Vossi Bop” which contains the following lyrics: “F*ck the government and f*ck Boris”, the latter being a reference to Tory leadership frontrunner Boris Johnson.

    This time, the artist even managed to get the crowd, numbering in the tens of thousands, to actually chant these lyrics in his stead.

    Later, however, Stormzy delivered a message of sorts to the politician by himself when, during the performance of “Cold”, he “told Boris Johnson suck your mum we don’t care”.

    ​Videos of Stormzy’s performance at the festival quickly went viral, with many lauding his conduct at the event.

    Some social media users, however, appeared critical of both Stormzy and the audience.
