OK Stormzy may have some valid criticisms of the regime, however his new figure of some sort of voice of all things righteous seems a bit bizarre seeing how a lot of his lyrics contain lines that promote violence & other degenerative things - see this link https://genius.com/Stormzy-mr-skeng-lyrics for an example
Well a couple of hundred thousand people seemed to be enjoying Stormzy last night and I’m sure a few million others did on TV. So whereas you’re perfectly entitled to think that he, and grime music in general is wank - that doesn’t make it categorically so. I’ve no doubt that some Stormzy fans will think that your music taste is wank.
