Skepta has won this year’s Mercury Prize. The Grime artist’s fourth album, Konnichiwa, picked up the prestigious award, the first recognition for grime since since Dizzee Rascal won for Boy in da Corner in 2003. Skepta beat some of the UK’s biggest artists, including Radiohead, Bat for Lashes and even the first posthumous nomination, for David Bowie’s final album Blackstar.

Congratulations Skepta.
