The elderly gentleman wowed shoppers who stopped to watch his magical performance of ‘Shut Up’ UK Grime megastar Stormzy on London’s Carnaby Street.

Rapping “Oi rudeboy, shut up” into his microphone the grandad, wearing a leather jacket, gold chain and fake diamond ring, also performed 50 Cent classic “In Da Club” and Skepta’s “That’s Not Me”.

Charity workers Giles Robinson and Sophie Epstone spotted the old rapper performing from their office window.
