So the scene has done it again. Following on from Skepta’s 2016 win of the award, three years later has since Dave win the award for his album Psychodrama.
Dave beat the likes of the 1975 for their album A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships and Foals Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost. Other nominees included slowthai with his album Nothing Great About Britain and Little Simz Grey Area.
As with every Award show, each nominee performed before the winner was announced with Dave putting on a heartfelt, deep, emotional and just out right sick performance of his track “Psycho”. Even more so was his classy acceptance speech where he brought his Mum onto the stage. Thanking everyone who helped him make the album, shouting out the other nominees and his brother Christopher who inspired the Psychodrama album.
