Skepta to peform at the 2017 BRIT Awards

Having snubbed the entire Grime scene last year – and let’s face it, most of the British ‘Urban’ scene – the BRIT Awards hierarchy have clearly made a conscious effort to diversify the event and have announced that Skepta will be performing at this years event.

Skepta’s Mercury Prize winning album Konnichiwa is nominated for three awards at this year’s BRITS ceremony for Best Breakthrough Artist, Best British Male and Album of the Year.

Other Grime acts up for awards include Kano and Stormzy.

 

The Brit Awards will be held at The O2 Arena, London, on 22nd February 22.
