Watch Dave bring a young fan on stage for a fierce version of ‘Thiago Silva’ at Reading

Alex from Glasto has a rival

Dave wowed the audience at Reading Festival last night (August 23) with his set on the BBC Radio 1 Stage.

There was another ‘Alex from Glasto’ moment too when Dave brought out another young fan for a rendition of ‘Thiago Silva’. The fan – who goes by the name Jamz Mataz on social media – tore through a word-perfect rendition of the song to the delight of the onlooking audience.

Back in June, the ‘Location’ rapper brought Alex on stage to perform his track with AJ Tracey of the same name – which pays tribute to the Paris Saint Germain star’s talents.


As he appeared on stage, the crowd chanted “Alex Alex Alex” as the lucky fan performed a stunning word-perfect rendition of the track – which left the rapper visibly stunned. The video of Alex went viral and he later released his first single.
