The rapper, who held his stab proof vest for his first five songs, also showed a series of crime statistics in his third song First Things First.
Stormzy – whose real name is Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Jr. is – then brought up two ballet dancers for his song Do not Cry For Me to mark the racism that could be found in all walks of life.
During their performance, a screen behind the ballet dancers reads: & # 39; Ballet shoes are not traditionally made to match black skin tones. Until now.
& # 39; Former Ballet Dancers & # 39; pans & # 39; their shoes with makeup. Now there are ballet shoes for all skin tones. A huge leap forward for inclusion in the ballet world. & # 39;

& # 39; At the age of 25 I am the second-youngest solo act ever to Glastonbury, the youngest is a 24-year-old David Bowie in 1971. I am overwhelmed by emotions, this is the most surreal feeling I have ever had have experienced.
& # 39; I feel that my entire life has led to this moment. Can't explain what all this is, but I am 100% sure that this is all God and his favor. Give him the honor.
& # 39; Thank you Emily and Mike Eavis for believing in me. I can't wait to see you and hug you, thank you both so much. & # 39;

Stormzy & # 39; s performance comes after his girlfriend Maya Jama was spotted in the sun at the festival's Worthy Farm before going to Pyramid Stage.
The TV and radio presenter, 24, made her the epitome of glamor during the music event by slipping into a thundering mini dress that was printed with an intricate flower and bird design.
With a touch of bling from the ensemble, the beauty wore a diamond choker from designer label GCDS and attracted attention in large pink sunglasses.

Maya seemed ready to party a weekend away while she danced with her arms in the air and made sure her feet were comfortable with sporty white trainers.
The stunner closed her raven in a wavy style that flowed down her shoulders and emphasized her full pout with a smooth nude lipstick.
Maya spared no effort to come to the festival because she told her Instagram account that she had jumped into an Uber to get there.
The star posted a screenshot of her journey, which began in Surrey and ended in Bristol – an hour away from the farm where Glastonbury takes place.

A rough estimate of the cost of the taxi for a journey of about two hours and fifteen minutes, is £ 134 179 – if the beauty has opted for an ordinary car.
If she had splashed the money and opted for a Lux vehicle, she would have wasted no less than £ 395 to £ 526.
The rising star has been dating rapper and make-up star Stormzy for almost four years.
The couple went public with their romance in 2016 after keeping the first part of their relationship private.

Maya recently had a message for her Instagram followers and told them in a candid post about her stories that she had struggled with her mental health.
& # 39; Finally I accept that I have been struggling with my mental health for a while, I have been removing feelings for ages and have been trying to apologize for why I felt low because I couldn't explain what I felt or why, & # 39; she wrote.
& # 39; I feel that this is the first step to come forward while accepting myself, even though I am not the effervescent positive girl and I do not take any of these days as they come. & # 39;
She added: & # 39; I wanted to cancel and close plans, but I am not going today because I have learned something as bad as it feels now, it will not last long.
& # 39; I always go over how healthy transparency is online, but always delete this type of message before you publish it due to the vulnerability that comes with it. But it was all human. & # 39;
