Stormzy will be cameoing in the BBC adaptation of Noughts + CrossesMalorie Blackman‘s award-winning 2001 book set in a world divided by race.

In the groundbreaking novel, black people were represented by “Crosses” and were the ruling class, and white people were the underclass, represented by “Noughts”. Speaking to the BBC, Stormzy hailed the project as an “important show” and called Malorie Blackman one of his “childhood heroes.”

A fan of the novel and its authors’ books, Stormzy will be playing newspaper editor Kolawale, a role made specifically for the adaptation. The London-born MC will be joining the cast in South Africa where the series is currently being filmed. Stormzy said it was “a dream come true” to be involved in the making Noughts + Crosses,  which centres on the young love of the two protagonists Sephy, a Cross, and Callum, a Nought.

It’s set to be a huge year for Stormzy, with a headline appearance at Glastonbury Festival 2019 amongst the highlights.
