NOBODY SEEMS MORE up for a laugh than Stormzy.

Stormzy is the rapper that sat at home tweeting about Love Island and 12 hours after the series ended planned a collaboration with his favourite contestants on the show, Chris and Kem.


So with his Nando’s cuff links in place, Stormzy headed to GQ’s Men of the Year Awards last night, ready to enjoy himself. Stormzy is never shy about getting involved.

He made a surprise appearance on Love Island after causing ructions on the show, and then in a really unexpected move, he joined Linkin Park on stage at a festival, shortly before the death of Chester Bennington. This man won’t waste any opportunities that are presented to him.

Seeing Ronan Keating on the red carpet was no different.

He took a hilarious Snapchat with Boyzone’s Ronan Keating. The most unlikely duo you’ve ever come across.

They took not one, but two photographs together. The second also included Ronan’s wife Storm. Storm, Stormzy and Ronan.

It didn’t end on Snapchat either. Stormzy took to Twitter to share his excitement about meeting Ronan Keating. He wrote ‘At these events I just run up to everyone and beg it man just met Ronan Keaton [sic] are you mad’.

Ronan humbly replied ‘Nice to meet ya Man’. Later on, Keating congratulated the grime rapper on his award and suggested a collaboration. Boyzone Better Know?

On stage, while collecting his award for Solo Artist of the Year, Stormzy told the crowd at London’s Tate Modern he was ‘a little bit drunk‘, but that he thought “it’s such a blessing to be here in a room full of so many legends. I got a selfie with Ronan Keating. Are you mad?”

 Among the other stars that Stormzy was hanging out with was Liam Gallagher.

Stormzy also took a Snapchat with Liam Gallagher, who won Rock ‘n’ Roll Star of the year. While collecting his award, Gallagher also had a comment to make about aul Ronan Keating (how the hell did Ronan Keating accidentally and unofficially become Man of the Year?).

A lot of people have got a lot to say these days and obviously I have but not tonight because I’ve drunk a little bit too much champagne. As Stormzy said, you’ve got a selfie with Ronan Keating… I got a handshake off him.

Ronan jumped on the chance of including Liam Gallagher on the Ronan x Stormzy track.

Every single day, 2017 gets stranger and stranger.

In other GQ Awards news, Jeremy Corbyn made a special appearance to support Stormzy.

Looking well, lads. Jeremy Corbyn even presented Stormzy’s award for Solo Artist of the Year to him. During Stormzy’s acceptance speech, when he wasn’t talking about Ronan Keating, he stirred up a little bit of controversy when people thought he called Theresa May a pig.

Stormzy, in actuality called Theresa May a ‘Paigon’, which is grime slang used to describe someone who is an absolute shnake.
