Music stars don’t always get the credit they deserve, in fact they can often be written off as selfish, egotistical stereotypes, and while that may be true of some it certainly isn’t of Stormzy.
The London Grime artist took time out out of what is no doubt a busy schedule to share a heartwarming message with a young female fan, Matilda, who was being recognised on the Jeremy Kyle Show as an inspirational little girl.
Here’s what he had to say:

He said in the message to Matilda:
Yo Matilda, what’s going on, it’s Stormzy here. I’m hearing that you’re a massive fan and that everytime my songs come on, you know all the words and you rap along. So I just wanted to send you my love and my blessings.
Before signing off by blowing a kiss he added:
I’m also hearing that you’re a little bit of a legend as well, so, big up yourself. Lot’s of love Matilda, take care.
Fans were quick to show the man some love on social media following his video appearance:
