Grime artist Stormzy has had an incredible year.

From his debut album ‘Gang Signs and Prayer’ reaching number one in the UK Charts to leading an energised set at Glastonbury Festival, the South London star has tasted much success. He added a further accolade to his ever-growing list of achievements after he was presented with GQ’s solo artist of the year award at the Men of The Year Awards 2017.

The award show hosted at London’s Tate Modern museum invited some of the most influential people in British culture for a night of celebration. Stormzy arrived in a suave navy suit and was presented his award by none other than Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn – a man Stormzy has shown his support for both on social media and onstage during his Glastonbury set.

During his acceptance speech, Stormzy took a few shots at Prime Minister Theresa May before praising Jeremy Corbyn. Other winners on the night include British sports hero Anthony Joshua who won sportsman of the year, Chelsea Boss Antonio Conte winning special achievement of the year and Zayn Malik winning Most stylish Man.
