The last couple of years have seen Skepta gain the most plaudits and popularity in his career, having returned to his grime roots with 2014's That's Not Me. Last night confirmed this, as the Tottenham MC beat out David Bowie, Radiohead and Kano's far superior grime effort to win the Mercury Music Prize for latest album Konnichiwa. Other nominees included:

         Anohni - Hopelessness
        Bat For Lashes - The Bride
        David Bowie - Blackstar
        Jamie Woon - Making Time
        Kano - Made In The Manor
        Laura Mvula - The Dreaming Room
        Michael Kiwanuka - Love and Hate
        Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool
        Savages - Adore Life
        The 1975 - I Like It When You Sleep...
        The Comet Is Coming - Channel The Spirits
