Stormzy picked up two awards at the Brits and hit out at Theresa May and the Daily Mail for good measure

It was a night to remember for the grime artist.

Stormzy tore up the Brit Awards on Wednesday night, beating Ed Sheeran and Liam Gallagher in the best British male category before picking up a second award for British album of the year, beating Sheeran a second time, as well as Rag’n’Bone Man, J Hus and Lipa.

But that wasn’t it for the 24-year-old; he finished up the night with a huge performance, which included a political message about the Daily Mail and the Grenfell tragedy.

Accepting his first award of the evening, he said: “All the glory to God, this is all you. I know a lot of people… it seems like a strange thing, but this is all him… the Merky team… my mum, my whole family. Come on!!!

“Trust me. We done it. Also ‘Gang Signs and Prayer’, this was the hardest, I never worked on something like this in my whole life… we made something that I feel like is undeniable.”

And here’s how Twitter responded to his performance at the end:
