Wiley triumphs at Ivor Novello awards 2019

Wiley was among the winners at this year’s Ivor Novello Awards.

At a ceremony taking place at London’s Grosvenor House, Wiley, known as the “Godfather of Grime”, was awarded with The Ivors Inspiration Award, while The 1975 won both Best Contemporary Song and Songwriters of the Year.

Mariah Carey was also presented with the PRS for Music Special International Award, while Ben Howard won the award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically for “Nica Libres at Dusk”, from the album Noonday Dream.

The Ivors were created to celebrate British and Irish songwriting and composing across all music genres, including film, TV, and video game scores. They also recognise music creators for their wider contribution to UK music.

The Ivors Academy Chair, Crispin Hunt, said: “From heavyweights of rock, to gods of grime, jazz maestros to chart royalty; today’s celebrated music creators have been rightly recognised for their artistic merit and inspiring influence on their fellow creators. Congratulations to all the nominees and winners from The Ivors Academy.”
