UK grime legend Stormzy teamed up with ex-footballer and general lovely man David Beckham today to launch Manchester United’s new away kit
As ambassadors for Adidas, an unlikely pair showcased the new red, white and blue shirt at an exclusive event in London’s Oxford Street today – Stormzy and David Beckham.
“It has been my dream to meet David Beckham since I was a youngster,” said Stormzy. “He is a gentleman and hasn’t disappointed. I hope I wasn’t too fanboy around him – but he gave me a signed Manchester United shirt and that will be framed and going up on the studio wall ASAP.”
Beckham added: “It has been great to spend time meeting Man Utd fans at the Adidas store – in particular Stormzy – whose music I enjoy and know well – as it is always pumping out from Brooklyn’s bedroom!”
This looks like the start of a beautiful friendship. Stormzy’s interview with Beckham will be released on the official Adidas YouTube channel.
