Stormzy issues apology to MNEK over X Factor performance
STORMZY has apologised to MNEK for performing their single with another artist on The X Factor on Sunday night.
The grime star performed his new single Blinded By Your Grace Pt 2 on the talent show, but with Labrinth instead of his usual featured artist.
And, in an awkward revelation, it appeared MNEK only learned Labrinth had taken his place after the performance was aired.
MNEK tweeted: ‘Guys what do you do when youve come back from a date to find out that Labrinth was singing your song on X Factor instead of you? cos rn idk.
‘I haven’t watched the performance yet btw how did he do?.’ He added: “S**’s foul.’
Stormzy offered his ‘sincere apologies’ to his collaborator, blaming the mishap on a communication error with his team.
He wrote on Twitter: ‘Gonna quickly clear up yesterday’s situation with @MNEK not performing with me on The X Factor.
‘First and foremost, MNEK is my bro and someone I HIGHLY respect and what he done on the song is unmatched.’
Stormzy, 24, insisted that he and MNEK will be performing the song together on the Jonathan Ross show adding no ‘disrespect’ was intended.
