Grime sensation Stormzy is set to appear on the talent show X Factor as a supporting judge to Nicole Scherzinger in the judge’s house round of the show in South Africa.
Someone close to the artist spoke to BBC: “Stormzy is the man of the moment and he’ll be great. He speaks straight from the heart and won’t pull any punches. Simon (Cowell) is looking forward to seeing his onscreen chemistry with Nicole.”
It will be the second time Stormzy has worked with X Factor boss Simon Cowell following his involvement in the Grenfell Tower tribute song which featured a number of Cowell’s label artists under Syco Music.
The British grime rapper became an internet star when his ‘Shut Up’ track went viral, currently sitting at 65,000,000 views.
