South London MC takes home best male artist, album and grime act prizes at annual celebration of black British music.

Stormzy, the charismatic grime MC who won the approval of Jeremy Corbyn as well as millions of fans, was the big winner at the 2017 Mobo awards.

He scooped three prizes: best male artist, best grime act, and best album, for the chart-topping Gang Signs & Prayers. But he was prevented from making it a clean sweep in the five categories he was nominated in.

J Hus’s witty, self-deprecating summer hit Did You See won best song, while Mist took home best video for Hot Property, a big-budget affair in which the Birmingham MC swigs premium vodka on an Icelandic lava field. Stefflon Don, who was also shortlisted for the star-making Brits Critics’ Choice award this week, won best female. She performed at the ceremony at Leeds Arena alongside the chart-topping US rapper Cardi B, the London duo Krept & Konan, and the rising MCs Yungen and Yxng Bane. Giggs, the gravel-voiced MC who has recently collaborated with US rappers including Drake, Young Thug and 2 Chainz, and reached No 2 in the UK charts with his two most recent albums, won best hip-hop act. The unglamorously named Dave won best newcomer, after a year in which he has released everything from pop-rap tracks with Drake to hard-edged grime and, in Question Time, a track attacking Theresa May. Ahead of a new album early next year, Craig David continued his path out of the musical wilderness, winning best R&B/soul act. The Nigerian artist Wizkid beat a strong field including Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar to net the best international artist prize.
