Watch: Stormzy attends fan's Euro 2020 afterparty to celebrate England win

Stormzy celebrated England's Euro 2020 win over Germany by attending a fan's house party.

The Superheroes rapper – whose real name is Michael Ebenezer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Jr. – watched the match at Boxpark Croydon and promised he would celebrate at a fan's afterparty if the Three Lions stormed to victory.

And it seems the 27-year-old grime star kept his promise, as a video shared on social media by Flipz, president of Stormzy’s Merky Records label, showed him attending a private party.

The clip showed Stormzy inside a private home surrounded by partygoers before leading everyone in a rousing chorus of "Football's coming home" as they all jumped up and down in the garden.

It was captioned: "Stormz promised some random guy if England win we gotta go to his house for the after party & now we're here drinking beer smh [Shaking my head]."

The Vossi Bop rapper was born in Croydon and grew up in the area.

He was pictured enjoying the England v Germany match on the big screen at Boxpark Croydon wearing a Grealish England shirt.

When England won he could be seen jumping on the table and pumping his fists in the air.

Stormzy deleted his own social media accounts in February 2020, shortly after joking his career had "peaked" when he was awarded the first ever Greggs "concierge card" – awarding him free baked goods for life from the high street chain.

Last August the rapper donated £500,000 through his Merky Foundation to help students from disadvantaged backgrounds pay for their education.

The money was the first lump sum donated by the rapper since he pledged in June to give away £10m over the next decade to help fight racial inequality.

Stormzy has revealed that while growing up, as one of four children with his single mother working several jobs to make ends meet, he used to wear his sister's clothes.

He said: “I used to take all my sister’s clothes. Lucky for me my big sister was a tomboy. So lucky for me I could go and take her clothes.

“New trainers were never a thing for me.”
