Michael Kiwanuka wins the Mercury Music Prize 2020

In a year that saw so many firsts for the Mercury Music Prize, which saw more female-led artists receive nominations than ever before and announcing the winner on BBC One's The One Show, Michael Kiwanuka was awarded the 2020 prize in a live-announcement last night.

Winning for his stunning third studio album 'KIWANUKA', he was first told about his win the night before and forced to keep it a secret for more than 24 hours. Annie Mac presented him the award live on The One Show last night (25th September).

Listen again to his brilliant single 'You Ain't The Problem', lifted from 'KIWANUKA', in the player below.
