One of the UK’s most up and coming grime artists has been announced to perform in Kettering next month.

Intense Presents has managed to secure Stormzy to perform at The Loft in Dalkeith Place at the start of April.

Stormzy, who has sold out two of his 02 Academy Islington shows in less than four minutes, was named as one of the BBC’s Sound of 2015 list.

The South London rapper also picked up a MOBO for the Best Grime Act in 2014.

Rhys Alford, manager of Intense Presents, said: “I saw Stormzy was starting to do well for himself a few months ago, and I knew it was only a matter of time before he hit the big time. We’ve got a huge show to look forward to.

“We arranged a date well in advance to make sure we could both make this work.”
