BRIT Awards 2020 came off on Tuesday 18th February at the O2, London, United Kingdom. This award ceremony is said to recognise and award British most popular music in the year under review.
Brit Awards 2020 was promised to be more than just outstanding and the outcome of it is exactly above average.
Ghanaian-Brit rapper Stormzy went home as the British Male Artist of the year and Best Album award went to Dave for his masterpiece ‘Psychodrama’.
The most deserving debut album in the category, and alongside Michael Kiwanuka’s Kiwanuka, perhaps the most likely to endure as well.
After shouting out the legends in the building – Harry Styles, Stormzy, Lewis Capaldi, Billie Eilish and Hans Zimmer – Dave continues the work he started with his incredible performance earlier on, using his platform to celebrate “everyone that comes from the place I come from” – cue a big cheer from Stormzy – and the “young kings and queens that are chasing their dreams.”
“I am no different from you,” he says. “I am just a guy. Everything I’m saying is a fact: you can do anything you put your mind to.”
He finishes with an acknowledgment of “anyone who is inside doing their time” – including his brother, Christopher: “Hold it down, I love you guys.”
I’m not sorry to keep talking about it: it’s still a travesty that there were no female artists in this category.
