BANKSY has revealed he is the designer behind Stormzy’s Union Flag stab vest that he wore during his Glastonbury set last night.
The graffiti artist shared a picture of the grime star on Instagram wearing the vest with the caption: “I made a customised stab-proof vest and thought – who could possibly wear this? Stormzy at Glastonbury.”
The 25-year-old headlined the festival at Worthy Farm last night – becoming the first black British solo artist to top the bill at Glastonbury since it began in 1970.
While wearing the vest, the Londoner took a swipe at Tory leadership hopeful Boris Johnson during his explosive set.
Performing his recent hit Vossi Bop, Stormzy rapped: “I could never die, I’m Chuck Norris.”
The crowd completed the lyrics, chanting: “F*** the government and f*** Boris.”
HISTORY IN THE MAKING
The set was broadcasted uncensored on BBC Two.
The Croydon-born rapper wrote the stab vest on the iconic Pyramid Stage last night as Britain fights a bloody knife-crime epidemic with 30 blade-related deaths in London since the start of 2019.
While last year was the capital’s bloodiest in almost a decade, as the number of homicides reached 135.
The youngest victim of London’s knife crime horror was 14-year-old Jaden Moodie.
