Stormzy Wins AIM Innovator Award
19 Aug 2016
South London MC Stormzy has done it again.
On September 6 the rapper is set to receive one of the prestigious independent music awards which celebrates ‘the achievements of an artist, label or businessperson pushing the boundaries of independent music’.
Mistajam commented on Stormzy’s award by saying, ‘There is no better candidate to win this award than Stormzy. Statistically, creatively, culturally and physically; no other artist has taken the traditional music business model of how to make, market, create, break, tour and monetise a new musical artist and flipped it on its head in the way Stormzy has in the last 24 months.
‘He has forged a new path for his peers to follow and he’s done it all with no major backing and before his 23rd birthday! He’s not only set the bar, he’s redefined it.’
Other nominees for this years Aim Awards were Skepta, Ghetts, Lil Simz and more.
