Recent headlines have mistakenly labelled famous UK grime artist Stormzy as the footballer Romelu Lukaku. So Stormzy decided to take to Twitter to express his view on this.

This, as you can imagine, immediately was noticed and shared rapidly on social media. Stormzy himself took to Twitter to express his dissatisfaction towards the error:


Stormzy’s fans have showed support for his outrage and equally see the newspaper headline as ridiculous and offensive.
