Meaning of the phrase ‘Mel Made Me Do It’

Fans are thoroughly enjoying the rousing lyrics of Mel Made Me Do It, but many are confused about the meaning of the phrase.

It’s not a commonly heard or known phrase across the world. Stormzy hasn’t decoded it for his unversed fans either.

However, Tobí Rachel, Joe.co.uk‘s Social Editor, has helped many confused fans understand what Mel Made Me Do It actually means.

Taking to her Twitter on Friday, September 23rd, the journalist clarified: “Basically, Mel is a Black British school teacher who taught a lot of us in the Noughties (2000-2009).

“She showed us how to avoid street life. Without her, we will all be in prison or addicts. Mel Made Me Do It is what we say when we become one of the good Blacks, like Stormzy.”

I’m tickled how people are trying to figure out what Mel Made Me Do It when I recently found out what Mel Made Me Do It and who Melissa is but from what I’ve gathered she’s a force in the influencing community which makes this all the worse.

Stormzy was born in 1993 to a Ghanaian mother. He has three siblings – a brother and two sisters.

Talking about his upbringing, the UK rapper said (per The Sun): “I grew up in Norbury, that was my stomping ground, in a house of five of us, my mum, my two big sisters, my little brother and I grew up and we didn’t have a lot of money at all. Very working-class background.”

“I used to take all my sister’s clothes. Lucky for me my big sister was a tomboy. So lucky for me I could go and take her clothes.

“My mum was working two to three jobs at a time. She was a cleaner, dinner lady, so we didn’t have much growing up at all.”
