Grime track covered in front of baffled onlookers
An elderly man was spotted on the streets of London busking grime MC Stormzy’s track ‘Shut Up’ in front of baffled onlookers.
The unnamed man was first sighted on Carnaby Street this afternoon and captured on camera by a member of the public, whose video soon went viral online.
However, the incident was later revealed to be a stunt by website Unilad, promoting new Robert DeNiro film Dirty Grandpa.
In December, Stormzy leapt 99 places up the UK Singles Chart with ‘Shut Up’ to beat The X Factor winner Louisa Johnson. The single, which reached Number 8, pipped Johnson’s cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Forever Young’ by one place.
‘Shut Up’ started climbing the charts after Stormzy played British boxing heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua into the ring in his fight against Dillian Whyte.
