Stormzy won three prizes at the Leeds First Direct Arena on Wednesday (November 29) –  best male artist, best grime act and best album for “Gang Signs & Payer.”

Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn spoke at the event – which celebrates "music of black origin" – via recorded message. 

“It’s more important than ever that we celebrate black excellence and recognise the achievements of black communities," he said.

“This year, grime artists played a huge part in setting the agenda for British music and in the General Election, your contribution helped secure the highest youth turnout in a quarter of a century, showing the positive impact grime has on our society.”
