Skepta won ‘Songwriter of the year’ at the Ivor Novello Awards and his sister, Julie Adenuga, presented it to him! Before handing him the microphone, she joked that while he had been named songwriter of the year, one of his lyrics was “ring, ring pu**y, it’s your mama on the phone”.

The ceremony is intended to acknowledge talent in songwriting but has often been seen as overly dominated by more commercial artists, with Adele, James Bay and Ed Sheeran the big winners in recent years.

Skepta also won for ‘best contemporary song’ for ‘man’,which sampled a Queens of the Stone Age track.
