Stormzy speech

The MC spoke about his success in music.

Stormzy was invited to give a lecture at Oxford University, following in the footsteps of Kanye West, Shia LaBeouf and more. 

The Grime MC, who has experienced incredible success over the past 18 months, spoke about his journey in music and even opened himself up to questions from the audience.

“In school, all my teachers and my mum were super routing for me to study at Oxford,” he said. 

“I picked music as a career choice and this didn’t sit too well with them! So to be asked to come down and speak to the students there is a true tale of destiny giving you the right cards.”

Meanwhile, it was also recently announced that Stormzy will be heading up a #Merky residency in Ibiza this year.
