Dave calls Boris Johnson ‘a real racist’ during performance of ‘Black’ at Brit Awards

Dave added lyrics to his song “Black” at the Brit Awards to call Boris Johnson a “real racist”.

The crowd cheered on as the Streatham-born rapper made the change during a stirring rendition of the song, which is taken from his album Psychodrama

Dave also criticised the British media’s treatment of Meghan Markle in comparison to how it treated Kate Middleton.

He rapped: “And if somebody hasn’t said it / Equality is a right, it doesn’t deserve credit / If you don’t wanna get it, then you’re never gonna get it / How the news treats Kate versus how they’re treating Megan.”

“It is racist, whether or not it feels racist / The truth is our Prime Minister is a real racist.”

Dave also paid tribute to Jack Merritt, who died in the London Bridge terror attack in 2019.

This year’s ceremony, which celebrated the event’s 40th anniversary, was presented by Jack Whitehall.
