Stormzy has joined protestors in support of the family of Chris Kaba, who was shot dead by armed Metropolitan Police officers in south London.
A march took place through London on Saturday over the death of Mr Kaba, with crowds gathering outside Scotland Yard demanding justice for the 24-year-old.
Mr Kaba, who was due to become a father, died in hospital in the early hours of Tuesday after being shot following a chase with police on Monday night in Streatham Hill.
Vossi Bop singer Stormzy, 29, spoke at the march, saying: “Chris has a mother, he has a family, he has brothers, he has friends, people who knew him in real life, who for them, it’s unbearable.”
He said there was no way to “sugar coat” what had happened to Mr Kaba and urged them to “have stamina” in their efforts to raise awareness of his death and the events surrounding it.
“Everyone here today, I would encourage everyone to have stamina,” he said.
“And I know it’s a very difficult thing to say… But when these people do these things, they get away with it, because what happens is we do this once, we get tired, we tweet, we get tired, we do it for a week, we do it for two weeks, we do it for a month, and they know we get tired.”
“What they’ve done is they’ve killed someone. We can’t sugar coat it,” he added.
Hackney Labour MP Diane Abbott and Streatham Labour MP Bell Ribeiro-Addy were also at the event in the capital, which saw supporters in the crowd carrying signs saying “Justice for Chris Kaba” and “Black Lives Matter”.
