Mercury music prize winner Speech Debelle ‘booed by Take That fans’

London rapper jeered off stage at 'SingStar' launch

Speech Debelle was reportedly booed by Take That fans last night (November 25) after she attempted to rap the band’s 1993 hit ‘Pray’.

This year’s Barclaycard Mercury Prize winner was jeered off stage during the London launch of the group’s new ‘SingStar’ game.

“I’m a rapper. I don’t do Take Shit,” Debelle said to the crowd after they began booing.


Her reaction then prompted the host, actor and comedian James Corden, to respond by saying, “That was shit, anyone can rap”, before the Gavin And Stacey star launched into his own rap.

Earlier this week, Debelle ‘sacked’ her record label over poor sales of her debut album.
