Stormzy Savages Theresa May On Stage At The GQ Awards

Last night Stormzy picked up GQ's Solo Artist Of The Year award and he used the opportunity to lay into UK Prime Minister Theresa May, branding her a 'paigon'.

To potentially save you a search through Google, it means a lying, deceitful person.

The 24-year-old grime artist was handed the award by Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Standing side-by-side with Corbyn, Stormzy, (birth name Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Owuo, Jr.) said: "It's so incredible to be here with everyone. Big up Jeremy Corbyn.


"I do wanna use this to say Theresa May is a paigon and you know what you're doing right now.

"Yeah trust me. Yeah, it's awkward innit when I say that. Trust."


There was initially a bit of confusion amongst the middle-agers in attendance over what had been said. Blairite spin doctor Alastair Campbell at first believed he had called May a 'pig' and Tory bloggers Guido Fawkes thought he had meant 'pagan'.

As well as having a go at the British Prime Minister, Stormzy also said that he was 'blessed to be in a room of so many legends'.


He added: "GQ Man Of The Year Award, Solo Artist Of The Year Award. I'm so blessed to be here. I just want to thank God, thank my mum, thank my whole team.

"I can't even believe it. Your boy is on the cover of GQ, south London boy, this is incredible. Thank you so much, man. Love."

This isn't the only time he's called out a 'paigan', he used the term last year after NME used him on their cover without his permission, alongside nabbed quotes about his mental health.
