It didn’t take long for UK rapper Aitch to shoot to stardom after appearing alongside Glastonbury headliners Stormzy and Ed Sheeran in the Shape of You singer’s Take Me Back to London remix video. Aitch is the new kid on the block and thanks to his meteoric rise from performing on YouTube with attention-grabbing freestyle uploads to playing the 1Extra stage at Reading and Leeds festival, many people have been left wondering where the talented wordsmith hails from. The teen might not even be 20 yet but he already counts the likes of Stormzy and Wiley as fans and even crooner Robbie Williams has revealed himself to be a fan after filming himself lip-syncing to Aitch’s latest single, Taste (Make It Shake), which just happened to debut at number four in the UK charts.
So, who is Aitch, how old is the teen star and what’s his net worth after the Take Me Back to London remix propelled him into the mainstream public eye? Where is Aitch from and how old is he? Aitch, whose real name is Harrison Arnstrong was born and raised in New Moston in the North West of England. A district within the City of Manchester, Aitch’s hometown was instantly put on the map after Ed Sheeran used a café in the town to film the video for the Take Me Back to London remix. In the video, Ed and Aitch can be seen tucking into breakfast and sipping mugs of tea, which happens to be in a real life café called Love Lunch in New Moston.
The 19-year-old, who will turn 20 in December this year, originally studied sport at college but didn’t enjoy it, so started working as a labourer before discovering he had a talent for rapping. A Manchester United fan according to an old Twitter bio, the young rapper revealed in a radio interview with Capital Xtra that he chose his stage name because: ‘my real name begins with the letter H, so I’ve been called ‘H’ from time, but because I’m from there everyone says it like ‘aitch’ so I just spelled it like that.’ What is Aitch’s net worth? Aitch has enjoyed the success of three Top 20 singles this year alone including Strike A Pose with Young T & Bugsey and Kilos with Bugzy Malone. The young star is going on tour in the UK in September with a second leg in December to promote his upcoming EP AitcH20. Stats Mash calculate that Aitch’s net worth currently sits around £902k.
