Stormzy launches brand new music video to students in Dublin school
And he absolutely nailed the pronunciation of Pobalscoil Neasáin...
Stormzy launched a brand new music video for his song 'Superheroes' in a north Dublin school on Wednesday.
Pupils at Pobalscoil Neasain in Baldoyle were shown the animated video on Wednesday morning, becoming one of the schools chosen at random in London, Glasgow, Dublin and Manchester for the debut of the new music video.
The song, which was released on his most recent album in December, calls for kids around the world to find the power within themselves to be loving, caring people.
He said: "I wanted to show it to you guys first being students at school, I think it’s important that you guys understand how powerful you are."
Speaking directly to the students at Pobalscoil Neasáin he said: "I know it's been a crazy year. I know it's probably been really frustrating for you guys in particular. I hope that you're back at school, fresh, focused and ready, difficult as that might be."
