Dave was responsible for one of this weekend’s funniest viral moments at Glastonbury, when he plucked a fan named Alex from the audience at his Other Stage set who proceeded to flawlessly join in with the track, all while sporting a Thiago Silva football shirt.
The performance led to Silva finally acknowledging the track, released in 2016 as a collaboration between Dave and AJ Tracey, who tweeted early this morning: “Thanks Alex!”
Writing on Twitter, Dave joked that “Thiago Silva has recognised ‘Thiago Silva’ and now I have decided to retire”. He added: “My work here is done.”
The Silva shout-out capped an incredible weekend for the Streatham-born rapper, who also made an appearance during Stormzy’s barnstormer of a headlining set on Friday night.
