The rapper will be the first grime MC to headline Glastonbury Festival for 2019, it has been announced. This was after a poster appeared in the window of an Oxfam in Streatham, which revealed the rapper as the first headliner. The shop’s management requested ab employee put the poster up, and sightings were also spotted near the Glastonbury site.
