Stormzy sings at funeral of fan’s father

Nas Bockarie’s dad died on the day of his graduation, and he sent a message to the grime star asking him if he could make the funeral.

Stormzy replied asking to send a direct message, or DM, and it appears he has fulfilled the bold request.

Bro my Dad passed away on the day of my graduation last week Friday. Our favourite song of yours was blinded by your grace. Would love it if you could preform this at his funeral next Thursday 21st December. Don’t worry if you can’t, I just thought I’d try my luck 🙏🏾 #Hopeful

Mr Bockarie tweeted to the star: “Bro my Dad passed away on the day of my graduation last week Friday. Our favourite song of yours was blinded by your grace.

“Would love it if you could perform this at his funeral next Thursday 21st December. Don’t worry if you can’t, I just thought I’d try my luck. #Hopeful.”

Friend of the recent graduate Deji shared a screenshot of the tweets, alongside a picture of the singer at the funeral.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help cover the funeral costs. The service was held in a church in Reading.

Stormzy’s representatives have been contacted for comment.
