“My approach is just fearless. I’m not afraid to try anything.”

Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Jr., better known as Stormzy, didn’t come from a musical family, but at an early age he knew he wanted to be a rapper. Despite often getting into trouble at school, Stormzy was a good student and considered attending Oxford. Stormzy is outspoken, and his controversial comments have upset people in power. But Stormzy is not afraid to speak out for what he believes in.
