A member of Goldie Lookin Chain has been voted into his local council.
MSN reports that the band's Rhys Hutchings won the battle to become a councillor in the St Julians ward in Newport, Wales.
It is said he gained 981 votes after the election went through a few recounts.
Hutchings said that he was the most difficult thing he's had to do since he got the Duke of Edinburgh Award aged 15. He said:
"It's the hardest thing I've had to do since my Duke of Edinburgh Award when I was fifteen years old. I'm chuffed to have won and it comes after hard work by my supporters and I've got to thank them for that. I can't wait to help those people that trusted me and voted for me."
