It kicks off in Dubai on 7 February and ends in Africa in October - what a grafter. He'll also make his solo debut at the O2 Arena in London, where he will do two nghts in a row - 3 and 4 September.

After that he will head out to Africa, stopping off in Ghana - where his mum is from - and end the tour in Lagos in Nigeria.

To get early access to tickets, fans can get pre-order his new album Heavy Is The Head from the official store.

It's been a massive year for Stormzy - in June he became the first black British solo artist to headline Glastonbury Festival, and it saw him well and truly seize the moment with his acclaimed set.

Prior to taking to the stage on Friday, the grime artist shared a series of tweets, showing that he was clearly aware of the significance of his headline slot.

He said: "I am the first black British artist to headline Glastonbury. At 25-years-old I am the second youngest solo act to ever headline Glastonbury, the youngest being a 24-year-old David Bowie in 1971. I'm overwhelmed with emotions, this is the most surreal feeling I've ever experienced.

"I feel my entire life has led to this moment. Can't explain or fathom what this all is but I am 100% sure this is all God and his favour. Giving him all the glory.

"Thank you to Emily & Mike Eavis for believing in me I can't wait to see you and hug you both. Thank you so much."

Before he released his platinum-selling debut album, Gang Signs & Prayer in February 2017, he had already made a name for himself as one of the most promising UK rappers, but he's proved himself to be so much more than just a musician.

In fact, as well as being an incredible performer, he has helped to evolve the musical landscape, speak out about politics and causes he believes in and is an advocate of black empowerment and social activism.

During his Glasto performance he took the opportunity to highlight a plethora of social issues, including the injustice of young black children being criminalised in a biased and disproportionate justice system.

General sale for all shows on the H.I.T.H. tour (except Dubai) will start on Friday 6 December at 9am, local time.
