Giant Stormzy mural appears in Dublin

Marking the first stop on the Croydon MC’s UK and Ireland tour


A giant mural honouring Stormzy has appeared in Dublin to mark the beginning of his UK and Ireland tour.

The Croydon MC – who last month released his debut album ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’, which rocketed to number one in the UK charts in its first week – has just embarked on the huge tour, and kicked off proceedings at the Olympia venue in the Irish capital last night (March 29).

Ahead of the opening night of the tour, a mural dedicated to Stormzy went up in Dublin. The image depicted in the mural is taken from the 2015 video for his freestyle-turned-single ‘Shut Up’.

Posting an image of the mural on his Twitter, the MC praised and thanked the artist responsible for the artwork. See the mural below.

This Stormzy mural got painted in Smithfield ahead of his show tomorrow in The Olympia.
