Stormzy, Aitch and Kano are among the acts leading the nominations at this year’s anticipated GRM Daily Rated Awards. 

Hosts Mo Gilligan and Julie Adenuga will reunite to bring us another celebration of black music in the UK when the Rated Awards returns on September 9. 

The show will stream live on YouTube and RatedAwards.com due to coronavirus restrictions meaning we’ll all have to watch from the comfort of our homes. 

Stormzy leads this nominations list with an impressive four nods for male artist, track of the year for Own It, video of the year for Sounds of the Skeng and album of the year for his second record Heavy Is The Head. 

He’s also snuck in another nomination in the track of the year category for his feature on Tion Wayne’s I Dunno alongside Dutchavelli. 

Stormzy will be up against Top Boy star Kano, who’s nominated for album of the year with the critically-acclaimed Hoodies All Summer, male artist and video of the year with Trouble.
