MNEK: X Factor snub was just a Stormzy in a teacup
MNEK may have a strained relationship with Stormzy — but says there’s no more ‘tea’ to spill about their row.
Tensions brewed between the pair when Stormzy performed their track, Blinded By Your Grace, Part 2, on The X Factor last year with Labrinth.
Asked about the snub MNEK — real name Uzoechi Emenike — chuckled: ‘There isn’t any tea for you on that one. The kettle is dry’.
Translation: ‘tea’ stands for telling the truth about something.
Turning focus to his upcoming debut album the 23-year-old told GP he will draw on his experiences as an ‘out gay black man’.
‘I want to make a pop career but don’t have a template to follow, so have to make my own,’ he said.
His new single Colour (ft Hailee Steinfeld) is out now.
