Stormzy Crowned “Person Of The Year” By University of Oxford’s Afro-Caribbean Society
The University of Oxford’s African and Caribbean society (ACS) has crowned Stormzy as its person of the year.
“Today I received the ‘Person Of The Year’ Award from Oxford University ACS. Standing proud in a room full of young black Kings & Queens,” he tweeted.
Stormzy was handed the award as part of Oxford University’s Annual Access Conference.
The rapper shared pictures of him and his award alongside students who attended the event on Tuesday night.
It’s an event designed to encourage students of African and Caribbean descent to make applications to Oxford and higher education as a whole.

The society’s Annual Access Conference usually honours black Oxford alumni, giving them the chance to speak to year 12s about what can be achieved by studying at the University.
But this year, they mixed things up dedicating an award to the rapper for being a positive role model.
“Thank you for continuing to inspire our generation, and for your support of Oxford ACS outreach work,” they said in a tweet after the conference.
