BET Award winner Stormzy delivers speech at Oxford University


When you think of Oxford University, you’re probably not the only one who doesn’t automatically think grime artists.

But you should. BET Award winner Stormzy gave a lecture at The Oxford Guild to a lucky audience of a few hundred with thousands watching live via streaming site Periscope.

The musician who looked pretty excited about the invitation earlier shared this;

Very very proud to announce that I have been invited to speak at the prestigious Oxford University next Monday. I was a little smart arse in school lol and my teachers, my mum and even myself were really hoping that I would one day study at Oxford. I had the grades and academic ability to…but I eventually chose music instead of a more “academic” career path. So to be asked to come down and speak to the gifted students at the uni is a beautiful coincidence. My mums gonna be super proud of this one, your boy didn’t get to go Oxford but it all turned out alright in the end.

Stormzy has a say on the #BritsSoWhite and bigged up Skepta and Krept and Konan – and said “Britain is not just One Direction, Little Mix and James Bay.”

He also talked about hi=ow disgusting it feels when he uses the N Word;

“It’s horrible, it’s disgusting, but I’m the worst. I don’t even wanna do a N word count in my lyrics. I’m trying to stop. It’s not cool”.

Recent Oxford University addresses include speeches by Kanye West and Shia LaBeouf.
