Skepta and Liam Gallagher

The Oasis legend thinks the grime star is "keeping it real".

Skepta has responded to a seal of approval given to him by none other than Liam Gallagher.

The former Oasis frontman took to Twitter to praise the grime star, writing: “Man like Skepta keeping it real. Got to stand for something.”

The grime star - who last night won the Ivor Novello award for Songwriter Of The Year - took to Twitter to return the favour, replying to the outspoken rocker with a red rose.

Some fans thought the online love-in might be evidence of a new friendship struck up between the pair, with one even suggesting they collaborate on a "diss track" against his brother Noel. 

Asked for further response by NME at the Ivor Novello's, the Shutdown star said: "Liam’s in touch, bro. You can see. Not everybody really knows what’s happening. It’s a presence, it’s apparent, I’m here. You can see it in there eyes, you can see it in Bowie’s eyes when he takes a photo, rest in peace. There are so many of them."

We think that means he's happy about it.
