Stormzy Awarded Best Solo Artist At Q Awards, After Dominating Mobo Nominations


Stormzy’s week just got even better, after he scooped a huge prize at Wednesday (18 October) night’s Q Awards. 

The grime star picked up the gong for Best Solo Artist at the ceremony, which came less than 24 hours after he dominated the nominations for this year’s Mobo Awards.

Stormzy beat off stiff competition from Ed Sheeran, Liam Gallagher, Lana Del Rey and St Vincent to win the prize, which was handed out at The Roundhouse in Camden. 

There were also two prizes for Liam Gallagher, who picked up Best Live Act and the Q Icon Award.

Ed Sheeran was also named Best Act In The World Today, and arrived at the ceremony with his arm in a sling, after being involved in a bike crash earlier this week.
