The rapper said he wanted to “cry so bad” when his in-ear monitors blew twice during his historic set, and that he was certain it would be the end of his career.
The chart-topper, who was the first black British solo artist to headline the music event, revealed that his mother missed the live performance in June because she was praying for him to succeed after the pastor at her church experienced a negative vision about his set.
Stormzy, 26, told the Observer magazine: “The pastor saw reviews that said: ‘The worst performance of all time’ and then a hand coming down holding a stamp, and stamping on the review, DENIED.”
He said his mother’s pastor had called her just before he took to the stage, and that they and other members of their church prayed for the grime star while he performed live on the Pyramid Stage in front of thousands of fans as his in-ear monitors failed.
Although he did not know it at the time, his set was seen as a success, and he now believes that God saved him – as well as muscle memory.
He said: “I was so ready for that show. I’ve never been more prepared for anything.”
The music star said that if it had not gone well, he thought: “The country’s going to slaughter me for this. They’re going to absolutely rip me to shreds…”
He added: “There wouldn’t have been no second album.”
Stormzy, real name…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
