Customers have flocked to support Big Issue vendors after they returned to their pitches on April 12 – including superstar rapper Stormzy.
The music icon was pictured giving Big Issue vendor Elizabeth ‘LJ’ Littlejohn a fistbump as he parked his car outside the Chanel store in London’s West End on April 12.
The pair have struck up a friendship during Littlejohn’s 18-month spell on the pitch and the vendor revealed Stormzy was pleased to see him for more than one reason yesterday.
“It was cool to see him, he’s a nice guy. He thanked me yesterday because he said I was the reason that he didn’t get a parking ticket!” said 45-year-old Littlejohn.
“He’s a cool guy. I usually sell to Stormzy every month or so when I’m on that pitch.
“Whenever I see him we talk about fashion and music – he’s a great asset to the music business. I’m a big fan.”
