There is no stopping the jugganaught that is Stormzy. The 22-year-old South Londoner is going from strength-to-strength. Following making history with the release of the fourth edition of his ‘Wicked Skengman’ series, which went to No #18 on the official singles chart, and taking home two MOBO Awards; ‘Best Grime Act’, and ‘Best Male’ this year, the man known as Big Mike is adding another string to his bow.
Earlier in the week it was announced via social media that Stormzy and his right-hand man, DJ Tiiny will be kicking off their brand new weekly #Merky Show on Apples’s Beats1 this Friday (November 20) 8PM (GMT UK) .
Stormzy got a taste of radio presenting covering a couple of shows for Julie Adenuga, who joined beats1 from Rinse FM in the first quarter of 2015, and must have impressed management at Apple’s pioneering new station .
It’s unclear at this stage what the format of the show will take, but it’s rumoured that Stormzy may take on his Stiff chocolate persona for the show, bringing out his softer side for the ladies, throwing down a selection of slow jams. Make sure you check it out.
Congratulations Stormzy and DJ Tiny
