’94 baby Little Simz is an artist who just keeps moving on up.
The Islington born MC was in attendance at Gilles Peterson’s 10th annual celebration of the underground’s finest on Saturday night and ended up walking away with the ‘Breakthrough Artist Of The Year’ award. Her run in 2014 has been second-to-none and it comes as no surprise to see her walk away with this accolade – which is also her first ever award.
If her future is half as bright as her career has been so far, it’s the first of many. Congrats Simz!
