She’s been busy working on the promo for the new track, which comes as Stormzy was forced to deny that she was the reason for his split from Maya Jama. Stormzy, 26, and Maya, 25, split up after four years together in order to focus on their careers but rumors began circulating that Stormzy may have hooked up with Jorja. A representative for the rapper told Metro.co.uk: ‘I can confirm any accusations or reports surrounding Stormzy’s infidelity to Maya are categorically not true.’ Stormzy and Jorja have been friends for several years and even collaborated on a track together called Let Me Down last year.
