Sampha wins the Mercury Music Prize
Sampha won the Hyundai Mercury Music Prize last night for his debut album 'Process'.
Better known as a guest vocalist on other people's tracks, the South London singer-producer released his debut in February 2017.
Morden-based, Sampha, has previously worked with Drake, Solange and Kanye West, The xx, Zero 7 and Beyoncé.
After winning the prize, Sampha said:
"It’s taken me quite a while to feel like I was emotionally stable enough to write my own record and people have just been incredibly lovely and understanding … it feels like a weight off my shoulders.”
