Stormzy donates £9,000 to London student’s Harvard crowdfunding campaign

The grime artist made the donation under his real name, Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Junior

Stormzy made a South London student’s dream come true when he donated £9,000 towards her Harvard crowdfunding campaign.

Fiona Asiedu, an Oxford University student from Tulse Hill, had aimed to raise £12,000 in four weeks to cover the cost of a Masters programme in Human Development and Psychology at Harvard Graduate School of Education.

But Stormzy helped her to smash the target within hours after he gifted her £9,000.

The grime artist – who made the donation under his real name, Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Junior – parted with the cash after a friend of Asiedu posted him a link to the crowdfunding page on Twitter.

They tweeted: “Hi @Stormzy1 would you like to help my friend @FionaJ_A get into Harvard university? She is your GH sister in Christ.”

Asiedu’s friend later offered to thank the grime artist by treating him to dinner at Nando’s.

They tweeted: “@Stormzy1 let me take you Nando’s for a thank you chicken because this is all you.”

Stormzy replied: “Deal!”

A representative for Stormzy confirmed to Standard Online that he donated the money.

Asiedu, who initially thought she would “feel uncomfortable” at Oxford said she is “particularly interested in psychological development of individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds, specifically ethnic minorities and those from working class backgrounds”.

The total cost of the nine-month course at Harvard is £59,000 but she only had to raise £12,000 thanks to an external scholarship and a grant.
