He also joked about how pleased he was to be known as a philanthropist – and thanked his mother who was watching on.

Stormzy said: ‘The journey I took to get to this moment has been considerably different to yours.

‘You guys have the guts and the grit and the dedication that it takes to study for years and to finish your degree whereas I got my AS results in my first year of college and said yeah, see you later. I didn’t have the same minerals that you guys have.

He continued: ‘A year later I took another swing at my A levels at a different college until I sat down for my English exam in January and walked out after 10 minutes.

‘It took a hell of a lot for you to get here today. Your journeys to get to this moment were hard fought.

‘The road you took was not easy. And this is coming from someone who tried to walk that exact same road and failed.

‘So from the bottom of my heart I say congratulations, well done and you should all be so proud of yourselves, what you have achieved is incredible.

‘Don’t let anybody downplay it and don’t let anybody undermine it. If you are sat in this room today you are worthy and you are brilliant.’

During his speech Stormzy also thanked his mother ‘who is sitting there beaming with pride and joy right now because her biggest dream for me was for me to go to university and graduate and then become somebody so this moment is real full circle’.

He added: ‘And I always say that God has a funny way of bringing you exactly where you were meant to end up’.
