Football legend Ian Wright responds to claims he attacked Boy Better Know’s Jammer onstage

A clip of the incident has gone viral

Broadcaster and former footballer Ian Wright has responded to claims that he pushed Grime MC Jammer during a live performance last night.

The Boy Better Know member was onstage at London’s Printworks venue yesterday (March 22), performing at the Eskimo Dance event. During the show, Jammer was confronted by a stage invader dressed in a long coat and hat.

Footage of the incident has since gone viral, with Grime fans convinced that Wright is responsible for the onstage shove.


“I have so many questions,” the former striker posted in a retweet of the clip. “How was I on stage and on TV for the England game? Why was I there? And why was I so VEX with Jammer.”

He added: “Peace. Love and Support Local Artists.”

Later, Wright joked that Jammer had “dived” to the ground as he posted a series of laughing emojis. See those tweets below.

Wright also shared a meme of himself which shows the ‘Breaking News’ headline, “Ian Wright Did It”. “Stop this,” he tweeted.


Meanwhile, Boy Better Know’s JME has been previewing his upcoming new album with a series of free film screenings.

The rapper, who released his third studio album ‘Integrity’ in 2015, set his next project in motion with a visual release titled Grime MC. The first screening took place in Glasgow on March 18, and is set to arrive in London on April 2 at the Everyman cinema in Muswell Hill.

In 2017, Boy Better Know headlined Glastonbury’s Other Stage – with NME describing the set as “game-changing”.
