That’s right! On Thursday night Skepta swooped in and stole the Mercury Prize after a tightly fought showdown with David Bowie. Konichiwa is the fourth album from the grime artist, released in May this year to critical acclaim, and features singles such as Shutdown and Man (Gang). Matthew Healy of The 1975, who’s March 2016 I like it when you sleep for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it was also nominated for the award, took to twitter to praise Skepta. Jarvis Cocker is reported as claiming that although it was a tight competition it was always going to be a Blackstar that won.
