While performing on an album with our favourite artist is an unattainable dream for many, one lad has managed just that - and he only had to call Stormzy a 'd***head' to do it. Hear his story in the video below:
Josh Muni was so desperate for the rapper to release some new tunes that he decided to send him a voicenote on Instagram, telling him to get to work.
Clearly impressed, Stormzy was inspired to get moving and even included the 'joyous' recording on the track 'Big Michael'.
In a video posted to his TikTok channel, Josh explained what happened: "So I randomly sent this voice note to Stormzy."
The message reads: "Hey, yo, Stormzy g, I beg you, g, release new music, fam, cause you know what, it's gonna be so mad, fam.
"What's wrong with you? F***ing p****hole. Release some f***ing music, man. D***head."
Josh then shares a screengrab of Stormzy's reply, thanking him for the 'iconic' message and asking him to send him his address so he could send him some presents.
"But that's not it," Josh explains.
"Then a couple of months later, he releases his album and adds the voicenote as the intro on the first song."
In an interview with Capital Xtra about the album, Stormzy talked about Josh and how he came to be included on the first track.
He said: "He sent me that on Insta, and then I used it.
"I was just sitting down at the poker table one day and I just played this voicenote, and it was just my man flipping just cussing me, telling me, like, 'bruv, man needs some f***ing music'.
"This was a random person, his name's Josh Muni.
"I just wanted it to start with joy, you know what I mean?"
Since Josh shared the video, it has been viewed over 1.2 million times, with thousands piling into the comments to congratulate him.
One user said: "That is legendary."
Echoing the praise, another commented: "The best words you have ever spoke."
A third wrote: "Big respect to Stormzy, shows he cares. No cap."
While another added: "I have always wondered what the back story was on this."
