It’s hard to believe this weekend marks the first time he’s played the the O2 arena. 

And Stormzy certainly didn’t disappoint as he gave the home crowd a night to remember during his first time as a headliner at London’s iconic venue.  

The rapper, 28, put on a showstopping display as he took to the stage for his much-delayed Heavy is the Head Tour.

The Croydon-born star, real name Michael Ebenezer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Jr., made the very most of the opportunity, delivering a homecoming show to remember.

Featuring crowd-pleasers including Know Me From and Audacity, the performer was typically incendiary on the night and delivered a blistering performance that was two years in the making. 

A giant crowd hovered over the stage throughout, as the one of the UK’s most celebrated rappers put on a performance of a life time with his kinetic energy.

It comes after Stormzy’s wealth shot up to £4.2 million despite the previous cancellation of his biggest tour to date.

His firm Stormzy Limited rose £400,000 in value up to £3.4 million and the Hashtag Merky Touring Limited made a £860,000 profit in the 12 months up to the end of April last year.

He paid himself £850,000 after the bumper year in dividend payments from the touring company.

Stormzy was due to play a massive month-long tour in April 2021 which was shelved because of lockdown restrictions.

The Heavy is the Head Tour was rescheduled to begin in March this year.

It includes three nights at the London O2 Arena as well as two nights in Dublin and other arenas around the UK. 

Revenue in Hashtag Merky Touring is believed to include earnings from the tour as the gigs were due to take place during the year covered by the accounts.

The tour is to back up his best selling 2019 album Heavy is the Head, his second best-selling album release.
