    Stormzy's #Merky Foundation has donated £500,000 to fund further or higher education for people from underprivileged backgrounds.

    The Black Heart Foundation, which received the gift, says the money will help fund a further 50 scholars.

    It's the first charity to receive major money from the £10m anti-racism fund Stormzy announced in June.

    The London-born musician said the donations - over 10 years - will go towards "supporting and strengthening" the black community.

    Imagine being a teenager and finding Stormzy in your house when you get home from school.

    That’s what happened to 15-year-old Ishae from Croydon.

    The rapper was there to help decorate his bedroom as part of a “give back” scheme run by decorating company The Good Guys.

    The musician also talked about why he'd been cheering at the recent Black Lives Matter protests in London, saying: "One thing I really want this movement to do is show what it means to be black."

    He said the protests showed a real pain, adding: "This ain't some sort of trend, this is real life and this has been our reality for hundreds, thousands of years."
