Stormzy is due to set off on his debut North American tour later this month, but ahead of his long-awaited visit to the States, he’s stopping by Oxford University to give a lecture. Following in the footsteps of Kanye, who spoke at the university last year, Stormzy says, “It’s an honour to be asked to speak at such a prestigious establishment. In school, all my teachers and my mum were super rooting for me to study at Oxford, I picked music as a career choice and this didn’t sit to well with them!”
“So to be asked to come down and speak to the students there is a true tale of destiny giving you the right cards,” he explained. The talk will be livestreamed via The Oxford Guild’s Periscope account at 3 p.m.. EST/8 p.m. GMT, and can be watched here.
