Congrats to Dave for winning Mastercard Album of The Year with their album ‘Psychodrama’. In his performance Dave also called out Boris Johnson for racism. “It is racist, whether or not it feels racist, the truth is our prime minister’s a real racist / They say – ‘you should be grateful, we’re the least racist’ / I say the least racist is still racist.” He also criticised press treatment of Meghan Markle. “If you don’t want to get it, then you’re never gonna get how the news treats Kate versus how they treated Meghan.”
The other nominees were Harry Styles – ‘Fine Line’, Lewis Capaldi – ‘Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent’, Michael Kiwanuka – ‘Kiwanuka’, Stormzy – ‘Heavy Is The Head’.
In his acceptance speech Dave said “You can do anything you put your mind to”
