Earlier this month, Stormzy was contacted by Nasir Bockarie, a fan who explained that his father had died on the same day as his graduation. Would love it if you could perform this at his funeral next Thursday 21st December.

The fan had no idea if Stormzy would actually come through, but the following day he tweeted him back, writing: "follow me so I can DM ya". Sometimes, a selfless act can go a long way. What a hero! God bless you Stormzy and love to you and yours'. I'm actually speechless, praise god for humanity'. "I can sleep well tonight knowing my Dad got the send off he deserved Rest In Perfect Peace Dad ❤️", he wrote alongside the touching clip. Our favourite song of yours was blinded by your grace.

Family events for us are very special, whether it be a funeral or wedding.We try to find the positive out of everything and that can be hard at funerals, especially with younger family members.
