Stormzy has fans chuckling on Thursday (1 March) night, when he made a small slip-up after picking up a prize at the first ever Global Awards.
The ‘Big For Your Boots’ star won the Best R’n’B, Hip-Hop or Grime Artist award, after a fan vote, but when he took to the stage to accept it and give a short speech, Stormzy said: “Big up Magic Radio.”
Now, we love a bit of Magic as much as the next person, but they aren’t actually part of the Global network, which made his shoutout a tiny bit awks (and also pretty funny):
Stormzy just bigged up Magic whilst accepting an award from Global. Someone is furiously deleting Stormzy associated audio from the cartwall as we speak...— Scott Myers (@ProducerScott) March 1, 2018
I see that Stormzy managed to thank Magic at The Global Awards last night, despite the fact that magic is owned by Bauer. Yet not a single mention of how BBC Sheffield has helped his career.— Toby Foster (@tobyfoster) March 2, 2018
The fact stormzy just bigged up @magicfm at the @global#GlobalAwards is the best thing ever
