At just 23 years of age, Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Owuo, Jr, or Stormzy as he’s known to his masses, has become one of the UK’s most respected grime artists. Yet his talents aren’t restricted to a recording studio; the genre defying south Londoner is working alongside a dedicated team of touring professionals who ensure his live shows are worthy of a global audience. TPi’s Kel Murray attends the Gang Signs & Prayer tour finale at Brixton Academy, which was filmed live for YouTube and included guest appearances from Wretch 32 and Ed Sheeran.
