Stormzy wins prestigious AIM Innovator Award

15 August 2016

It has been announced this morning that Stormzy will be recipient of the AIM Innovator Award.

The Wicked Skengman will pick up one of the prestigious independent music awards to be added to his ever-growing-trophy cabinet. If you got an AIM bring it out… oh you don’t?

Mistajam said of Stormzy’s win, ““There is no better candidate to win this award than Stormzy. Statistically, creatively, culturally and physically; no other artist has taken the traditional music business model of how to make, market, create, break, tour and monetise a new musical artist and flipped it on its head in the way Stormzy has in the last 24 months.

“He has forged a new path for his peers to follow AND he’s done it all with no major backing and before his 23rd Birthday! He’s not only set the bar, he’s redefined it.”

Other nominees for further AIM Awards this year include Skepta, Little Simz, Ghetts and more.
