Skepta Announced As Ivor Novello Award Shortlister
Already a Mercury Prize winner, Skepta may just be able to add an Ivor Novello Award to his collection after making the shortlist at their nominations ceremony.
The 'Konnechiwa' star is up for Best Contemporary song with his single 'Man'. The category recognises outstanding originality in songwriting and marks Skepta’s second time in the category. Last year he was nominated for ‘Shutdown’.
Other British talents that made the cut include Adele and Laura Mvula.
The 62nd Ivor Novello Awards will take place on Thursday 18th May 2017 at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London.
