Ghanaian-British rapper has achieved yet another feat after being featured on the cover of Time's magazine, New Generation Leaders issue. The rapper who was the first black British solo artist to headline a festival at Glastonbury in February, is on his way to making history with his music.

In an interview with Time, the 26-year-old rapper opened up about his decision to quit his job and do music full time. Which he stated was a good decision as his kind of music known as Grime is making waves in the UK at the moment.

Although grime as a music genre is yet to gain ground in the US, it is widely accepted in the UK and this has made Stormzy one of the biggest artists of his generation in less than a decade of joining the industry.

Asides from being super talented and unique, Stormzy is one artist who also has a grateful heart and this he showcased during his headlining festival in June. During his electrifying performance, the rapper took a moment to call out the names of great artists who have paved the way for his genre of music. He also took time to recognise his lesser-known contemporaries.

His face on the cover of the New Generation Leaders issue of Time's magazine is a special moment for him as an artist who found a path for himself in a foreign land.

Meanwhile, a Nigerian fashion designer, Amaka Osakwe, has spent over a decade in the industry and made giant strides.
