Noel Gallagher to win NME's 'Godlike Genius' award

Noel Gallagher is set to pick up the coveted 'Godlike Genius' accolade and this year's NME Awards.

The former Oasis man is lined up to collect the award at the bash on February 29, with the prize boasting alumni like Paul Weller and Dave Grohl.

Gallagher, who has been flying high with his solo project over the past year, told NME:

"I would like to thank NME for bestowing upon me such a great accolade. I have dreamt of this moment since I was 43 years old. I accept that I am now a genius, just like God."

NME's editor Krissi Murison meanwhile said:

"For the best part of two decades, the voice of one man has dominated the pages of NME more than any other. That man is Noel Gallagher. Opinionated, intelligent, passionate and always hilarious - Noel walks and talks it better than any other musician out there, and it's just one of the reasons why the British public loves him so dearly."
