Since then, Stormzy has gone from strength to strength, winning countless awards, delivering an iconic headline performance at Glastonbury, and being named of one of TIME Magazine’s ‘Next Generation Leaders’.

Along the way, Stormzy has become a spokesman for black empowerment and social activism, using his platform to highlight numerous social issues including the Grenfell Tower tragedy. He has also continued to give back to the community through his philanthropic work. Last year, he launched ‘The Stormzy Scholarship’ to fund the study of two black students each year at Cambridge University.
