It was the MOBOs last night and Stormzy came out the big winner of the evening, taking home three prizes.

Following his win, the rapper was asked the big question on everyone’s lips: is he going to the royal wedding? “If I get an invite”, he replied. “I don’t know how up the priority list I’ll be but hopefully after these three MOBOs I’ll fucking move up a bit”.

Giving himself another route into the party, he added that he wouldn’t mind performing “a little acoustic for young Harry”.

This year’s more unlikely grime star Jeremy Corbyn also made an appearance ahead of the event. In a pre-recorded video he thanked grime fans for their support in the General Election earlier this year.

“The MOBOs play a crucial role in the British music industry, showcasing music of black origin”, he said. “It’s more important than ever that we celebrate black excellence and recognise the achievements of black communities. 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”.
