Stormzy’s pearls of wisdom aren’t limited to his explicitly glorious lyrics, apparently.
When Stormzy and his superstar musical mates get together for a natter on the sofa, the rapper-turned-agony-aunt freely offers dating advice with profoundly funny results, if this video is anything to go by.
Asking Stormzy, whose real name is Michael Omari, whether he gets a lot of girls trying to slide into his DMs, the rapper humbly replied, ‘Not anymore’.
Apparently that’s not a problem for Stormzy, who is the proud creator of the greatest, most enigmatic introductory DM in history.
Explaining his fool-proof conversation-starter, Stormzy said:
…This was my DM trick… This is how slick I thought it was.
Eyes emoji. Wait for the response. And then you just say, ‘number’ with a question mark.
So there you have it. Boasting a ’95 per cent pass rate’, Stormzy bestows upon to you his dating DM advice. Use with discretion.
The full version of Stormzy x Ed Sheeran will be available to watch on Noisey soon.
