Last night (September 19th), Dave was awarded with the 2019 Hyundai Mercury Prize for his debut album Psychodrama.
When awarded for the speech, Dave invited his mum to join him on stage. Dave thanked his mum, brother, friends and his team for all their support and inspiration.
The award was presented by Annie Mac who stated “The winning album showed remarkable levels of musicianship, it showed courage, it showed honesty. It’s simply exceptional. The winner of the 2019 Mercury Prize is Dave.“
Dave’s debut album dropped back in March and has been hailed “the boldest and best British rap album in a generation“.
The other artists that were in line to win the award were Slowthai, Little Simz and Nao. With Dave winning this outstanding award, we can only expect even bigger things to come from him.
