The rapper, known as Dide, released a track called Thrill on YouTube last weekend and he claims to be a Premier League footballer, which has sparked plenty of rumours and debates among fans over the real identity of the masked artist.

After he released a freestyle in February, the following was written with the video at the time:

‘Premier League footballer jumps in the UK music scene with this freestyle video. Keeping his identity unknown by wearing a uniquely designed mask that is covered in roses. He goes by the name…..DIDE.’

When asked whether there were any secret rappers in his squad, he gave a blunt response.
