RAPPER STORMZY IS taking the music industry by, er, well, storm.

The London rapper is playing the Olympia theatre tomorrow, to a sold out crowd.

In honour of his arrival, this amazing mural has appeared in Smithfield overnight

It’s located at Haymarket, off the square, by a group called Subset.

They told 98fm news that they simply installed the mural because they all think “he’s a complete boyo”, and hope he will stop by tomorrow to see it himself.

It’s getting tons of praise on social media

What a welcome to Ireland, eh?

It’s based on a still from the musician’s video, Shut Up.

And all the effort wasn’t lost on the man himself

He tweeted the photo, and thanked the artists on Facebook.

What a welcome.

Stormzy is also set to headline the Friday night of Longitude in Marlay Park in July.
