Skepta Wiley NME Awards

Skepta and Wiley win big at the 2017 NME Awards!

Last night, the 2017 NME Awards went down at O2 Brixton Academy in London. While artists like Frank Ocean, Christine & The Queens and The 1975 all walked away with trophies, it was Wiley and Skepta that dominated Wednesday’s ceremony. Wiley, who also performed on the night, was praised for his contribution to music as he accepted the Outstanding Contribution to Music Award. MOBO Award-winner Skepta presented the award with an impassioned speech, crediting Wiley for lifting him up and believing in him from early on in his career.

Check out the full list of winners and highlights from the night below…
