British grime music artist Stormzy delivered a rousing performance on day two of the Yasalam After-Race Concert series at the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Friday night.
Accompanied by DJ TiiNY, Stormzy had the crowd rapping along to his hits “Big Michael,” “Audacity” and “Cold,” all prime examples of the superstar’s sharp wordplay and fiery lyrics.
“Let’s dance, have fun and make lots of memories we can all take away and keep forever,” Stormzy told the crowd as he revealed it was his first visit to Abu Dhabi to huge cheers from the audience.
Stormzy, the first British rapper to perform a headlining slot at Britain’s Glastonbury festival in 2019, also performed his acclaimed hits “Big For Your Boots” and “Vossi Bop.”
Two artists from Flash Entertainment’s Regional Artist Spotlight (RAS) — UAE-based Somali rapper Freek and Syrian crossover rapper and singer Moh Flow hit the stage for warm up sets ahead of the highly anticipated show.
