RAPPER ArrDee was among the well-known guests at a Christmas party held by Stormzy on behalf of his charity.

The Brighton-born rapper attended the event, titled A Very Merky Christmas, which took place at Fairfield Halls in Croydon.

The 19-year-old was joined by a host of celebrities including AJ Tracey and Wretch 32.

Pictures from the event also show ArrDee performing on stage.

Free tickets were also given to those living in the south London borough of Croydon – Stormzy’s home town.

At the event for Stormzy’s charity the Merky Foundation, attendees were treated to games, workshops, a tombola and a performance from a choir.

The Merky Books team are also donating 500 copies of their first children’s book Superheroes: Inspiring Stories Of Secret Strength as part of the event.

The comic strip-style book is a celebratory collection of modern-day heroes curated by Stormzy, including athlete Dina Asher-Smith, comedian Mo Gilligan, writer Candice Carty-Williams, Great British Bake Off star Liam Charles and former footballer Wright.

Author and performance poet Sophia Thakur performed at the event and the book’s illustrator Denzell Dankwah ran a drop-in drawing workshop for children.

Brit Award-winner Stormzy, real name Michael Omari, also took to the stage at the event wearing a festive Father Christmas hat.

ArrDee, real name Riley Davies, shot onto the music scene in April this year after the release of the chart-topping remix Body alongside Tion Wayne and Russ Millions.

The hit song became an overnight sensation after his verse gained popularity on TikTok.

Before the success of the UK chart topper, ArrDee released Cheeky Bars in January.

The music video was filmed entirely on the Brighton beach bandstand in Kings Road, while in the music video for his June release Oliver Twist, he can be seen at a number of Brighton locations including the i360, Regency Square and Bexhill Road in Woodingdean.

ArrDee’s most recent release Flowers (Say My Name) reached number one in the Official Trending Charts.

In the music video for the song, he can be seen in front of Brighton Palace Piers and in Preston Park.

ArrDee’s admiration for his hometown is clear in a number of his videos and lyrics to date.

Cheeky Bars contains lyrics including “chatty white boy raised up by the seaside”.

While in 6am in Brighton, the rapper describes himself as a "seaside boy".
