STORMZY has said there is no credible reason for people or the press to hate Meghan Markle.
Speaking on Ebro in the Morning on US radio station Hot 97, Stormzy said: “I look at it and I think Meg, she’s a sweet girl, she’s a sweet woman. She’s a lovely woman. She does her thing. I haven’t heard her say anything crazy. And they just hate her, they just hate her.”
Referring to Eamonn Holmes comments on TalkRadio – the presenter said: “I’ve never met her either but I look at her and I think, ‘I don’t think I would like you in real life,’” – Stormzy said that it was the Duchess of Sussex’s blackness that had made her a target.
He said there’s “nothing credible” about the hatred people have for the Duchess of Sussex.
The MC went on to discuss Britain’s colonial past and the reluctance to face up to it.
“Brits won’t even talk. The British empire is the darkest s* ever. The Commonwealth, that’s the darkest s* ever…that’s literally England going to countries and destroying communities. And Britain [acts like] oh, that was back in the day, that’s nothing to do with us,” he said.
As well as appearing on Hot 97, the rapper also made US TV debut on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
The grime MC appeared on the late night entertainment show to perform his song Crown from his new Number 1 album Heavy is the Head on Monday.
Following his performance, Fallon said: “Fantastic. That was great. You have a great singing voice too. It was amazing.”
Stormzy’s 2020 is off to an extremely successful start. He secured the first Number 1 single – Own It featuring Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy – and album of the new decade; has been nominated for three Brit awards, and, for many, won his recent clash with veteran grime MC Wiley.
