In the week of the release of his first album, Gang Signs & Prayer, Croydon’s global grime star, Stormzy, has given an extensive interview to Channel 4 News, in which he talks about depression, aspiration and even “power to the people”.
In a fascinating insight, he says, “If you have a platform and you’re not saying nothing, then what are you really doing with yourself? I love the fact that I am able to say things and it resonates. With that comes great responsibility.”
