It’s now been over a week since Skepta made the nation proud with his Mercury Prize win. After beating the likes of Radiohead & David Bowie, Konnichiwa has made its way high into the charts. At the time of writing, it is currently no25.
Since winning the Mercury Prize, sales of the album have increased by an impressive 260%. Wow.
Skepta is the first grime artist in 13 years to win the prize- since Dizzee Rascal did so 13 years ago. At a current sales figure of 85,393, the BBK artist is certainly pleased with himself.
Look at the joy on Mama Skepta's face and the pride in Baba Skepta's eyes.
The Adenugas have done well! 🇳🇬🙌🏾👏🏾pic.twitter.com/DnjzeXLO0U

After being nominated for several MOBO awards, he may have to make some extra room in his trophy cabinet. Well done lad.
