“My first time headlining a festival was @ Longitude 2017, you guys built me a f****** mural (massive love & respect to @subset), my album went #1 here the only other country besides England where it went #1, Crown just went into the top 10 here.

“You lot show me a different kind of love and energy every time I perform and to top it all off Vossi Bop just went double platinum here.

“Gonna do something special for you guys soon but this is just me saying I appreciate all the love and support.”

He added the letters “IE” and heart emojis.

The post was later deleted.
