Faced with criticism in 2018 for not admitting black students into their university, Cambridge has taken a leap of faith in a bid to change the narrative.
The Ghanian born-British singer, Stormzy has taken the world by storm through his scholarship program to help black students who needs the platform. He once had the same opportunity but didn’t make use of it when he was in their position. He added that some academically brilliant students will be glad to make use of the opportunity, so he decided to set up a scholarship program for them.
Cambridge University is one of the most prestigious universities in the world and Stormzy started his scholarship program in 2018 for black students with the desire to attend the University. So far, he has succeeded by 50% which prompted the name “The Stormzy Effect.”
Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Jr goes by the stage name Stormzy once said he was almost expelled from school due to his naughtiness even as a brilliant kid in school who always got straight A’s. He worked in quality assurance for 2years at an oil refinery but because of his love for entertainment, he decided it was time to do music and has gained a lot of recognition over time.
His scholarship program is a way of giving back and contributing his quota to the empowerment of others.
