'My life's greatest desire is to be a great man of God': Stormzy gives interview to Vogue

by Ros Mayfield

Stormzy is featured on the front cover of November’s British Vogue magazine and has talked about the kind of Christian he aims to be.

Vogue described the British grime star as someone who deeply relies on his Christian faith and “frequently emphasises its role in his life”.

 “My greatest desire is to be a great man of God,” the 30-year-old said. “My desires are maybe different to other people in my position.”

Hailed by Time magazine as a “Next Generation Leader”, the rapper peppers his conversations and lyrics with expletives and sexual references, but he also talks passionately about his relationship with Jesus.

The artist with three No. 1 albums, whose real name is Michael Ebenezer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Jr, recently joined hundreds of mourners at a candlelit vigil in the Croydon community, for the 15-year-old Christian girl, Elianne Andam, who died in Croydon after being stabbed on her way to school.

In May 2020, he was given a Sandford St Martin award for his contribution to the public understanding of religion.

His faith-filled song 'Blinded by your grace' soared into the top ten of the UK's Singles Chart back in 2017.
