The GRM Daily Rated Awards returned as a live event last night, with a ceremony held in London.

Dave was the big winner of the night, taking home four trophies for Male Artist Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Track Of The Year and Video Of The Year.

The latter two were both for his Stormzy collaboration ‘Clash’, of which he said: “Back in 2019, I’d just finished my tour. My friend Cal who produced this song had just brought Jordan 1s and Jordan 4s, so I freestyled ‘Clash’. I played Stormzy the song in 2020 and then a year after that I got his verse! Four years of a journey to bring you guys this song”.

Accepting the Album Of The Year prize, he said: “Appreciate the love. Big up GRM, big up everyone who made this year possible. It’s been a big year for a lot of musicians and everyone’s done a lot to really push the scene forward”.

The show was closed by GRM Daily CEO Posty and Link Up TV founder Rashid Kasirye paying tribute to the late SBTV founder Jamal Edwards, after which his mother Brenda and sister Tanisha took to the stage to accept a posthumous Legacy Award on his behalf.
