This is Chelsea Kwakye ( @chelseakwakye) & Ore Ogunbiyi ( @oreogunbiyi) and today these two phenomenal women have released their book entitled “Taking Up Space - The Black Girl’s Manifesto for Change” - This is one of the most brave, brilliant, bold, important, well-needed, exceptional books in recent British literature history and I say that with my CHEST! Chelsea and Ore both just graduated from Cambridge University and wrote Taking Up Space as a manifesto for change tackling every intricate issue that sounds race in life before and after university. But it’s not your typical story of the trials and tribulations of being black in all white institution - it BRILLIANTLY discusses and addresses the most intricate parts of being a minority...the details that we so often feel but don’t quite know how to word or articulate and these 2 geniuses have done it incredibly. I am in awe. Thank you for allowing @merkybooks to publish this we are super super proud to be a part of the history that you guys are about to make. If you do one thing today PLEASE buy this book and read it and then read it again and then go back and read it one more time because it’s just that good. TAKING UP SPACE OUT NOW!

My second single “Crown” drops at midnight. I’ve been struggling to find words to describe how much this song means to me...struggling to explain exactly why I felt the need to say what I’ve said on the record...and can’t quite summarise the journey of emotions the song takes me on when I listen back to it. I’m very proud of myself for making this song and I can’t wait for you all to hear it tonight. Nothing but love and respect for my brother @jimmynapes a world class phenomenal talent and @mjcole the genius and legend - an honour and a pleasure to work with you both my brothers. We’ve created something very special and close to my heart. CROWN - Midnight 👑❤️

“Where words fail, music speaks.” Tomorrow at midnight I release the second single from my forthcoming album. The song is entitled “CROWN” 👑❤️

A week before I shot the Vossi Bop video I was racking my head for ideas until I was on Wandsworth road looking for the entrance of an apartment block and mistakingly went into the Sainsbury’s car park. When I drove down I saw about 50 kids popping wheelies and swerving all over the place so then I pulled over and asked em if they could be in my new video. They came down to the shoot, smashed there scenes and then we vibed and then they started schooling me on this Bikelife ting. Telling me about the whole culture, the different bikes and about a guy called @mac_for_them & his event @bikestormz_ that was happening on June 1st. I rolled up yesterday and saw the most beautiful and POWERFUL movement of youth, love and togetherness. Mac draws in thousands and thousands of kids from all over England (and the world) to come together and ride and take part in competitions and to offer an incentive other than them being out on the roads getting up to whatever and there isn’t a single hint of conflict or negativity or violence just pure love and a bunch of kids having fun and enjoying themselves. He is a true true legend and the work he is doing is PHENOMENAL. If you hear the way these kids speak about bikes and you feel there love for riding you’ll understand why Mac creating a safe space like this for them is so special. This is community work at its most powerful and @mac_for_them has been doing this himself - true hero. Mad love to my new lil bros Bobby @bl.billzz who is the guy I spoke to in the car park and actually made this all possible, C1 @c1onthatswerve Trizzy @fwu.trizzy and all the rest of the young bruddahs who have intro’d me into this bike life ting. Anyone who wants to get involved or help reach out to @mac_for_them and be a part or something life changing ❤️🚲 🙏🏿

One time for #MERKY Books @merkybooks We recently launched the #NewWritersPrize - an annual competition where young writers between the ages of 16-30 can submit their novels, short stories, poems etc and be in with the chance of winning a full publishing contract as well as representation from The Good Literacy Agency. We had thousands of applicants all with incredible unique stories and perspectives and writing styles. We said from the beginning that we wanted the #NewWritersPrize to give everyone who applies the tools, information and access they need to develop their ideas, progress their writing and set off on the path to publication - regardless of whether they win or not. So now that we are down to the final shortlists of 20 writers we set up a Writers Camp at The Royal Society Arts House and created a space for the finalists to network and build with a community of writers and hear from published writers and industry professionals, learn social media tips and speak to editions and literary agents about their work. Today was AMAZING and reminded me why this venture is important and now I’m even more excited for the future of @merkybooks - BIG BIG thank you to the phenomenal #Merky Books team and every single person who made today possible from our guest speakers to the writers there’s too many people to thank you’re all amazing I appreciate you. P.S - Don’t forget that the second release on #Merky Books - @chelseakwakye & @oreogunbiyi Taking Up Space ( @takingupspacebook) is out next month and you can pre order it now ! 📚❤️💪🏿 WINNER ANNOUNCED ON JUNE 6th!!

I am very very very proud to announce the launch of my new scholarship “The Stormzy Scholarship” in partnership with Cambridge University. With this scholarship we will be funding and covering the full tuition and maintenance for 2 black students this year and 2 black students in 2019 to study at Cambridge University. We as a minority are still heavily under represented at the top universities and I pray this scholarship serves as a reminder that we are more than capable of studying at places of this caliber. Congratulations to all the A-Level students getting their results today, be proud of yourselves despite what you got and overstand that this is only the tip of the iceberg for what’s to come! This is my proudest venture thus far and I look forward to seeing some young black geniuses go on to achieve at Cambridge via this scholarship. @cambridgeuniversity www.cam.ac.uk/stormzyscholarship for all info. Applications close on Thursday 30th August! #StormzyScholarship ❤️🙏🏿💪🏿
