Stormzy, born as Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Jr., is an English rapper. He has released one mixtape, one studio album, two extended plays and seven tracks till date. In February 2017, he released his debut album titled ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’ that peaked at # 1 on the UK Albums Chart, making it the first ever grime album to reach the position on the chart. He is also known for winning the ‘Best Grime Act’ at the 2014 and 2015 MOBO Awards. Stormzy started out as a road rapper, rapping in a way closer to hip hop than grime. He then started making videos for YouTube but it wasn’t until the rapper began posting his Wicked Skengman freestyles that he attracted much wider attention. Eventually, he became a household name and joined the music industry. Since then, Stormzy has become one of the most influential artistes to look out for. His most successful single till date is "Shut Up", a BPI platinum-selling track which was initially released on YouTube. The song was then officially released and soon it went on to reach #8 on the UK Singles Chart. Stormzy is presently in a relationship with the UK presenter Maya Jama. He calls himself "a child of grime" who is influenced by the likes of the artistes Skepta and Wiley.
