Stormzy’s anger at racism claim over scholarships
University fees: Stormzy GRIME star Stormzy has said it is “ridiculous” that the scholarship he is offering to help black Cambridge University students pay their tuition fees has been branded racist.
The scholarship aims to encourage the admission of more black students to top universities, after none got into some Cambridge University colleges between 2012 and 2016.
He addressed the negative responses to the initiative on BBC Radio 1’s Life Hacks yesterday.
“I always got to reiterate on that and say this isn’t bias, this isn’t discriminatory. It’s none of that,” he said.
“It’s literally trying to bridge the gap to make it an equal playing field.”
