Another award to add to his trophy cabinet…
Stormzy’ year just gets better and better – the 24 year old has been announced as the winner of BBC Music Artist of year.
The awards comes off the back of his hattrick win at the MOBO Awards , where he claimed the ‘Best Album’, ‘Best Male Artist’ and ‘Best Grime Act’ award. Other notables awards includes the Q award, Rated Award and the MTV EMA award. Don’t forget that he was also the Mercury Prize award finalist, losing out to Sampha.
It has been a successful year for South London rapper who released his debut album ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’ earlier this year. The project executively produced by Fraser T Smith went on to top the UK Official album chart in it’s first week of release.
Since then, the album has also been certified as a gold selling project, thanks to the tour that saw him tour UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
Stormzy took to his social media to reveal his excitement at the achievement
“BBC Music Artist of the Year 2017. Another achievement courtesy of all the love and support you lot give me, here’s to another one. Forever grateful ❤️” – he said.
