On a new track titled ‘Mic Check,’ Grime artist Skepta raps about his rumored ex-lover Naomi Campbell and also his famous flings.
Skepta, 37, and the supermodel, Naomi Campbell, seemed to confirm their relationship in March 2018 when they posed together on the cover of GQ Magazine. As the romance crumbled down, the rapper has released a track about the negative side of dating someone in the spotlight. He mainly referred to his rumored exes Naomi and pop star Adele, who he was linked to last year.
‘Mic Check‘ is one of the tracks featured on his collabo album with Chip and Young Adz titled “Insomnia.” Skepta rapped in the song thus: “Can you handle the fame? You know you’re f***ing with a star? When you’re f***ing with me, they talk about you in the Press.”
He also references Naomi in the song interlude and claims she wore sexy underwear for him during a video call.
He raps: “How can I fall asleep when I’m on this FaceTime with Nao… shh. She got them Victoria Secrets that she’s tryna show me.”
Meanwhile, Naomi Campbell had previously revealed that their GQ shoot was meant for their private use, but they turned out well. So they wanted to share them with the world and also talked about calling Skepta by the name Junior.
“Well, can I tell you a secret about that, which I hope Skeppy won’t mind? Junior actually, I don’t call him Skepta, I call him Junior,” she said. “We basically did that shoot on our own, it wasn’t for any publication, and once I saw the pictures, I was like ‘no, no, no, we should come out.’ And so then I started making some calls.” She continued, “It wasn’t like I was going to wait months for it to come out – it’s either got to come out in the next few or it ain’t coming out at all. So first, I had to send someone with the pictures and da-da-da.”
Naomi also cited that she had fun at the photo shooting and that Skepta so much loves the camera.
She said: “It was fun shooting it, and Junior just loves the camera. He’s great. And the whole team, we shot that in one day in New York, like hours., because I remember he got off a plane straight from London and came to the shoot.”
It was reported that Naomi unfollowed Skepta in August 2018 after he posted a baby scan on Instagram that led to fans questioning whether or not they might be expecting a baby. She deleted all the traces of Skepta, including their famous GQ Magazine cover photo.
Meanwhile, in October the same year, it was claimed Adele had taken her whirlwind romance with Skepta to the next level by introducing him to her friends, including James Corden.
The source then said: “No one saw it coming, but there’s a whirlwind romance going on between Adele and Skepta.”
Skepta, whose real name is Joseph Junior Adenuga, appears to confirm that things are now over between him and Adele as well. Adele had previously filed for divorce from Simon, 46 – the only partner she has gone public with during her career, last month.
