Stormzy wins 2 and lights up 2018 Brits Awards

UK-based Ghanaian Grime artist Stormzy last night at the O2 Arena won a Brit Award 2018.

The multiple award winning Stormzy clinched the Brit Awards 2018 for the best British male and best British album for Gang Signs and Prayer beating pop artiste Ed Sheeran to it with his debut album ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’.

This caps off a great 2017 for the UK-based artiste of Ghanaian descent after he also won the BET Awards for Best International Act: Europe and the MOBO Awards for Best Grime Act, Best Male Act, & Best Album.

Recently named a UN Goodwill Ambassador for Africa, Dawuni also performed at the United Nations Headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya as well as at the UN Palace of Nations in Geneva for the World Health Organization’s (WHO) “Breathe Life” concert which was held in Geneva, Switzerland.

“Rocky is the next generation of Afro-beat, voicing the concerns of the voiceless with a great African, Jamaican and American orchestra of musicians forging a new sound with him in compositions that reflect both the past and a path to inform the future.“ Reggaeville

Rocky is currently preparing to release his much anticipated 7th album entitled “Beats of Zion” in early 2019 through Six Degrees Records. His new song “Burn One” was recently featured on tastemaker radio station KCRW as their “Top Tune of the Day” and was featured on TNT’s hit TV drama “Animal Kingdom.” Another forthcoming track from the album “Let’s Go” is the theme song for Cadbury Canada’s Bicycle Factory Campaign 2018 and the beautiful 360-degree video for the song has already reached over 1 million views on YouTube.
