Earlier today, influential musician and social justice campaigner Michael Owuo Jr (a.



k.a. Stormzy) praised the “guts, grit, and dedication” of students as he was awarded an honorary degree from the University of Exeter in recognition of his outstanding achievements in the field of higher education philanthropy and widening participation.

In his speech to graduates, Mr. Uwuo said he felt “extremely blessed and grateful” to receive his honorary degree and joked about how pleased he was to be known as a philanthropist and “Dr Mike”.

Professor Lisa Roberts, University of Exeter Vice Chancellor, said: “We are proud to honour Michael for his remarkable contribution to society and extraordinary talent."

He is an outstanding musician and wordsmith, and he inspires people to speak openly about their beliefs and fight for their rights.

The University of Exeter has put social justice at the heart of its new ten-year strategy, which includes opening doors to people from all walks of life into higher education, and it was wonderful to hear Michael’s powerful speech today to students and graduates.

Mr. Owuo’s #Merky Books, an imprint within Penguin Random House UK, is dedicated to publishing the best new fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.

His “Stormzy Scholarship", an annual scholarship to fund black British students to go to the University of Cambridge, has so far supported six black students through their Cambridge education, and last year saw a very significant expansion with HSBC donating £2 million to support 30 "Stormzy Scholars" over the next three years.
