Adele is in complete awe of Stormzy following the rapper’s incredible headline performance at Glastonbury 2019.
The Vossi Bop rapper graced the Pyramid Stage at Worthy Farm on Friday night, delivering an epic set filled with his hit singles, surprise appearances from the likes of Coldplay’s Chris Martin and rapper Dave, and strong messages of empowerment for other black British artists.
Like the rest of us, Adele, 31, watched Stormzy’s set at home and was immensely proud of her close friend.
In a heartfelt Instagram post, the Someone Like You singer said: ‘I have love in abundance for this strong, sweet and honest man. I’m so proud of him, Stormzy just monumentally headlined Glastonbury in his own right with one album!!
‘The first Grime artist ever to do so, you respected everyone that opened the door for you whilst opening a huge one yourself [sic].’
She continued: ‘You and your team are all so good, hard working and beautiful and deserve everything that comes your way. Its been a joy to watch you unfold at lightning speed with absolute grace. It’s actually crazy what you’ve done in less than 3 years, well done darling x.
‘Well done Emily Eavis too, Glasto couldn’t be in a better pair of hands! [sic].’
We’re not crying, you are.
Earlier, Stormzy’s other a-list pal Ed Sheeran also praised his performance and said: ‘First black British solo artist to headline Glastonbury, second youngest to ever headline, and just an inspiration to so many.
‘This is just the start, congrats big Mike, looking forward to see you do more achievements like this [sic].’
Of course, all three now have in common that they’ve all headlined Glastonbury with Adele taking the honour in 2016 and Ed doing the same in 2017.
Just a couple of days before his appearance at Glasto, Stormzy revealed he had been getting advice from Adele, Ed and Chris Martin.
Rapper Drake watched from afar and congratulated Stormzy in an Instagram Story, which said: ‘Stormzy headlining Glastonbury and that madness congrats [sic].’
Glastonbury 2019 continues this weekend with headline performances from The Killers and The Cure.
