Stormzy About His Height
We are in awe about his height. But, what about he himself?
“It’s so funny when I jump in cabs. I know the driver sees this 6″5 black guy and thinks if this guy decides to bump me what am I gonna do.”
“I’m 6″5 and trust me when I tell you life’s different when you’re this tall…straight showers because I’m too big for the bath and thing.”
He Was A Good Student And A Reader…
“I was a very naughty child, on the verge of getting expelled, but I wasn’t a bad child; everything I did was for my own entertainment. But when I went into an exam, I did really well.”

Well, he did score six A*s, three As, and five Bs on his GCSEs. He also studied for an apprenticeship in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.
“My mum’s always had big aspirations because I’m an academic. I always got good grades at school. GCSEs were just a breeze for me.”
“I read so many books when I was a kid that I didn’t even know were shaping me up.”
Before he pursued his passion for music, he worked at an oil refinery in quality assurance.
“When I’m good at something, I always try to be the best at it and claim that throne. Even in school, I never let anyone say anything to me; I would always be the smartest.”
To top it all, he is funding two black undergraduate students at Cambridge University until the completion of their degree course. He had also funded two students in 2018.
