Michael Ebenezer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Jr. or simply Michael Omari Jr, is better known as British multi-award-winning rapper Stormzy.
Stormzy was born in Croydon, London, in 1993. His mother is Ghaniaian and raised him herself, along with his three siblings. Although he confesses to being a naughty child, Stormzy finished school with six A*s in his GCSEs and before he left, his teachers were backing him to get into Oxford University. However that is not the path he followed, and after a brief stint on an Oil Rig job where he would write lyrics on post-it notes whilst at work, Stormzy started grabbing attention in the UK underground music scene with his Wicked Skengman series of freestyles over classic grimes beats, and in just a few years went on to become one of Britain’s most successful musicians, winning multiple MOBO Awards, Brit Awards, an Ivor Novello Award, and many others.
