Madame Tussauds London has officially unveiled their authorised Stormzy wax figure during an event that took place on August 11. Michael Ebenezer Kwadjo, professionally known as Stormzy gained attention on the UK underground music scene through his wicked Skengman series. In 2020, the London born artist began working with the museum’s artists with the work being previewed in a social media clip last month.

Speaking on the honour awarded him, the artist narrated how pleasing it was for him to see his statue at the Madame Tussauds and recalled his days at high school where he would see staple figures in entertainment, history and culture. “Seeing myself in 3D was probably the creepiest, sickest, scariest, strangest, most surreal thing ever, but I feel so honoured to have my own figure.” He Explained.

It was revealed that the figure was modelled during the artist’s 2019 headline slot at Glastonbury where he was spotted wearing a stab vest that was designed by Banksy.  “It was the easiest decision ever to have my figure styled on my Glastonbury performance and I am so proud to be going into the culture zone at Madame Tussauds London”

Speaking on his career, the artist said that he has always wanted to be in the culture zone and having his figure at Madame Tussauds was abox he always wanted to tick. “From a young age, I’ve always had big dreams of who I’m trying to be in the world, in culture as well. For me to be who I want to be, and to achieve what I want to achieve, and leave my mark on this world, I need to tick these boxes.”
