Ghanaian Born rapper Stormzy is sponsoring 30 black students at the University of Cambridge in the UK.
This is one of the ways the rapper is impacting lives with his talent and fame as a rapper in the United Kingdom.
In 2018 for instance, Stormzy in collaboration with HSBC Bank, UK and University of Cambridge gave 30 black students scholarship.
The good news, as was shared by Stormzy himself is that, another batch will have the one in a lifetime opportunity to pursue their dreams at the prestigious University.
The £20,000-a-year scholarships will fund tuition fees and maintenance costs for 10 new Black students each year for the duration of their degree courses at the University of Cambridge.
Stormzy took to his Facebook page to announce as follows:
For 30 more Black students to have the opportunity to study at University of Cambridge – the same year our initial 2018 scholars graduate – feels like an incredible milestone. Thank you to HSBC UK for their significant donation and of course, Cambridge University for always backing our mission. I hope this scholarship continues to serve as a small reminder to young Black students that the opportunity to study at one of the best universities in the world is theirs for the taking 🙏🏿❤️
Ghanaian hailing from the very best communities in Ghana – Fadama – Mustapha grew up with his cousin (Anwar) and Aunty.
At the early stages of his life, he was training to be an Arabic Scholar and started his schooling years at an Arabic school where he attended 3 different Arabic school a day. For this reason, he is able to speak and read Arabic fluently. At the age of 9 he decided he wanted to go to school and therefore joined his cousin at Kingdom Preparatory School in Fadama where he started nursery. Being an intelligent being he was appointed as a school prefect and was able to catch up to his age mates therefore managing to skip several years and joining his peers in Junior High at St Lawrence Catholic School at the age of 14. For this reason, Mustpaha enjoys singing hymns and often plays famous Ghanaian worship and praise songs in his spare time. Mustapha continued to prosper in his schooling days and was also appointed as a prefect at St Lawrence School.
Following his BECE completing with a minimum of 6 A’s, Mustapha went on to gain admission at Ghana National College in Cape Coast, though this was disheartening for him as his dream college was Mfantipm. At Afedu Royal House where Mustapha pursued his studies in general science, he was very highly respected. In his own words he passed through a very difficult training programme as Afedu House was infamous for being the most stubborn house on campus. During his student years, Mustapha impacted many students lives. Though he was surrounded by stubborn students, he made it a point not to be influenced by their bad behaviours, and rather influenced the boys at the house. In the words of some of his mates, “Mustapha was the light shining in the darkness at Afedu House.”
During his student years at Ghana National, he aspired to be a senior head boy in academics. Although he passed the vetting stages, he was not granted to read his manifesto owing to his religious background. Though this was disheartening, Mustapha did not give up and went on to implement the changes he would have liked to see by becoming Ghana Muslim Student Association (GMSA) president and helping be the voice of Muslim students who would’ve been discriminated against by the school. Some of the changes Mustapha achieved during his reign were for example, during Ramadan, food will be reserved for Muslims prior to and after fasting. Secondly, Muslims were no longer obliged to attend Sunday Church services. He rather enabled that Muslims to be given a place of worship where they could pray and carry their daily rituals. Following this, though he was not officially the head boy, most issues affecting final year students were brought to his attention for resolution. This is where Mustapha’s leadership journey truly started.
Mustapha continued his education in Ukraine in 2015 following the advice of his cousin Anwar about study opportunities in Ukraine. His degree was in medicine and surgery. The first thought Mustapha had on arrival was that he would become the president of the National Unions of Ghana Students (NUGS) – Ukraine. In his first two years Mustapha learnt Russian and was able to converse fluently with locals hence making him a favourite with several of the Ukraine school officials. Following this he then began to take up leadership roles listed below:
Public relations officer – Dnipro Chapter (2017 – 2018)
President – Dnipro Chapter (2018 – 2019)
Vice President – NUGS Ukraine (2018 – 2019)
President – NUGS Ukraine (2019 – 2020)
Trustee Board Member – GUGS (2019 – Present)
As a student Mustapha co-started his company Planaria Medical Agency where he taught students KROK lessons and also signed a tutorship contract with Medlink.
Mustapha graduated from the Dnipro State Medical University as one of the top 2% of his class in the degree, Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery. He is now due to start working as a medical doctor with the aims of specialising in medicine.
As a young child, Joseph Allor-Annan would always accompany his grandma for her routine hospital visits. There a new world opened up to him. Witnessing young doctors in lab coats and the altruistic care they gave to patients left an enduring impression on him and his current career choice.
As a firm believer that with the right motivation and perseverance nothing is out of anyone’s reach and a new dream in heart, he studied earnestly and to offer science in St. Augustine’s College.
Joseph, as an avid Formula 1 fan, is inspired by Lewis Hamilton who notwithstanding his background has made a name for himself as one of the best racers. “Still we rise”… a quote emblazoned on Joseph’s heart is his driving force to become a doctor and thus consequently graduating with honors from Saratov State Medical University.
During his time in medical school, he successfully led the electoral commission of NUGS Saratov and Audit committee of NUGS Russia.

A good life is Something to do, Someone to love, Something to hope for.
Reliable people do what they say. It seems so simple and at such a low bar to be reliable. You might ask whether people even remember all those little promises. They might not, but be assured they do notice when you deliver on them. When someone always follows through, it is impressive. It is the quickest way to build credibility and trust with others.
