Stormzy says Britain is “definitely, 432%” racist and It has got worse since Boris Johnson became prime minister.
The grime artist made the comments in an interview with Italian newspaper La Repubblica where he was asked if Britain was still racist.
He said: “Definitely, 100%. It’s like: ‘Oh no, we’re not racist’. But there’s a lot of racism in the country.
“The difficult thing with the UK is, as you said, in Italy it’s a clear problem, whereas trying to explain that Britain is a racist country [to a British person] is the most difficult thing ever.
“They think: ‘No, it’s not. Stormzy you’re successful. Look at London, there’s loads of black people … ‘It’s a more difficult case to fight. “
Stormzy, who has just released his second album, Heavy is the Head, said the prime minister was a “figurehead” whose comments encourage racism.
