Stormzy Is The First Recipient Of A Deliveroo 'Gold Card'

Food delivery service and bringer of sweet relief from hangovers Deliveroo has handed out its first 'gold card'.

The honour was bestowed on none other than Stormzy, following his number one album Gang Signs and Prayers officially being certified gold after selling 100,000 copies in the UK.

The 23-year-old stated that the food delivery service regularly featured in recording sessions, for his chart-topping album in official credit notes, which prompted the reward.

Stormzy posted an acceptance video with his Gold Card on social media, you can watch it here...


In the video he says: ""I have a phenomenal gold card from Deliveroo. This gives you the opportunity to get free food for a year.

"It's a serious card and if you want to get involved, enter the competition to be in with a chance of winning."


The card grants the star free Deliveroo for a whole year. They're also offering customers the chance to win a Gold Card.

Customers have three days left to enter, simply by stating why they deserve to receive a gold card, and to enjoy free Deliveroo for the next twelve months.

You can either enter yourself or nominate a friend by visiting www.deliveroogold.com or through the Deliveroo Facebook or Twitter pages.

Stormzy going gold is good news for anybody interested in the emerging UK music scene, as only one new act was certified Gold in 2016.


I'll leave you to guess who...

It wasn't Stockport five-piece Blossoms, whose self-titled debut album hit the UK top spot in August last year - it sold just just 74,155 copies.

It wasn't former One Directioner Zayn with 'Mind of Mine' released on 25 March 2016 - only 65,208 copies.

It wasn't BRIT award-winning Jack Garratt with his debut 'Phase' - that sold 62,954 copies.

No the enigma who managed to defy the online haters and... ahem... chase his dreams....

Yes, that's right, guys. The only debut British act to have their album certified Gold in 2016 was The Chase's host, Bradley Walsh.

So it's good news for the British music scene that by March 2017 we've already had a debut reach the debut that's not from an artist your gran's into.
