DJ/producer says he would 'never slate' the rapper
In the original post, which has since been deleted, the DJ/producer linked to a video of the rapper’s performance of the track on Britain’s Got Talent saying: “Fucking hell, did this really happen???”.
Now Harris has again taken to Twitter to explain what he meant.
“uuhhhhh i wasn’t ‘attacking’ Dizzee over the World Cup song, news sources,” he said, “i thought it was a bit surreal that’s all!”.
He added:”I would NEVER slate Dizzee he is still an all time music hero of mine, AND he saved my 2008!”
Harris, who worked with Dizzee Rascal on two UK chart-toppers ‘Dance Wiv Me’ and ‘Holiday’, also went on to suggest that he thinks his former collaborator could be set for an MBE.
He said: “I reckon within this decade we’ll be calling him Dizzee Rascal MBE!”
