BRIT Award nominee Stormzy has reportedly had his front door smashed in by police
BRIT Award nominee Stormzy had his door smashed in by police.
The 23-year-old Croydon rapper is shortlisted for a gong at the 2017 BRIT Awards next week (22.02.17) after he was nominated in the Best Breakthrough Artists category alongside Anne-Marie, Blossoms, Rag 'n' Bone Man and Skepta.
But the hip hop star - real name Michael Omari - was on the receiving end of a break-in rather than a breakthrough during the early hours of Tuesday (14.02.17) when he was woken by the sound his door being smashed in by police.
The grime artist, from Thornton Heath, had attended the ELLE Style Awards on Monday night (13.02.17) but just hours later he took to Twitter to vent his frustration over the "mistaken identity" forced entry.
He tweeted a picture of his broken front door, with the caption: "Woke up to Feds destroying my front door coz apparently I'm a burglar who burgles his own home. @metpoliceuk need your bank details still (sic)."
The Met Police are yet to officially comment on the incident.
But he isn't confident he will be refunded the cost of the damage. In a reply to a fan who claimed they too previously had their door smashed in by mistake, Stromzy wrote: "Bro trust me I ain't holding my breath lol proper d**kheads. (sic)"
Stormzy gained a name for himself of the underground grime scene, went on to perform on Later with Jools Holland, won two MOBOs and declared that he will be the "biggest thing to come out of Croydon".
Stormzy is set to start his 'Gangs Signs & Prayer Tour' next month (23.03.17).
