‪Stormzy used his Glastonbury set to demand answers from government about deadly Grenfell Tower block fire‬

DEMANDING ANSWERS: Stormzy

BRITISH RAPPER Stormzy used his set at Glastonbury to call attention and demand answers into the deadly tower block fire in London.

Joining a list of performers paying tribute to the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire, which killed at least 79 people, he took a moment during his performance on The Other Stage to remember the victims of the blaze before publicly calling for answers.

Addressing the crowd he shouted: “We are urging the authorities to tell the f*****g truth, first and foremost. We are urging the authorities to do something, first and foremost. We are urging the f*****g Government to be held accountable.”

Spurred on by his fans cheers he added: “We ain’t going to stop til we get what we f*****g get what we deserve. Alright Glastonbury?”

He also performed his rap verse from the Simon Cowell’s official charity single, Bridge Over Troubled Water, written in honour of all those affected by Grenfell and raising money for all those displaced.

Revealing a T-shirt emblazoned with a heart-shaped logo reading “Grenfell” he recited the verse which includes the lines: “I refuse to neglect you/That’s for every last soul up in Grenfell/Even though I’ve never met you.”
