Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn smiled after Stormzy referred to Theresa May as a ‘paigon’ at the GQ awards.
Mr Corbyn handed the grime artist the award for Solo Artist of the Year, and as he did so Stormzy made the derogatory comment about the Prime Minister.
In urban slang, ‘paigon’ is used to mean someone who is a backstabber, a snake or generally not a nice person.
He said: “It’s so incredible to be here with everyone…we’ve got Jeremy Corbyn!
“I do want to use this to say that Theresa May is a paigon and you know what we’re doing right now… yeah trust me.
“Yeah, it’s awkward isn’t it when I say that.”
He then thanked God, his mother and his team for the award and said it was incredible that he, a South London boy, had been on the cover of GQ.
