From growing up in Warstones in Wolverhampton to performing and collaborating with some of the world’s most renown urban artists, Wolves Foundation are proud to announce their newly appointed ambassador S-X.
S-X, also known as Sam, is a true representation of what the Wolverhampton Wanderers Foundation aims to achieve. With his Wolverhampton background, and knowledge about the needs within the city, the main objective is to work together to encourage, enable and empower the younger generation to achieve their goals and aspirations.
While the grime artist may be in the eyes of fame, he hasn’t forgotten his roots, with both the Foundation and Sam looking to change the lives of young people, and tackle some of Wolverhampton’s most challenging areas. Together their focus is to create diverse opportunities through their knowledge, expertise and experience of the local community.
The short wearing enthusiast says: “I love to give back. Whether it is helping those that might be less fortunate or assisting people creatively. I just like seeing people’s faces when something pays off, the feeling of accomplishment is a real reward to me.
“It takes a lot for someone to reach out and I want to ensure people of Wolverhampton know that we are here for them.”
S-X shares a common interest with the Foundation, and with the artist now representing the official charity of Wolverhampton Wanderers in an ambassadorial role, it’s hoped the Foundation can create more projects with a clear focus of mental health in young people and look at the re-launch the Premier League Kicks programme within Wolverhampton.
Get to know Sam...
- I only wear shorts, I don’t own a pair of trousers. It is just a vibe, in any terrain or event... shorts are life.
- I suck my thumb, I have since I was a young boy making beats in my bedroom… I admit, I can’t sleep without it.
- To switch off, I play Fortnite or go to the cinema.
- To raise money to achieve my goal, I used to work in the retail at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
