Loyle Carner was the first winner at the 2018 NME Awards as he scooped Best British Solo Artist – but sadly Big Narstie didn’t get his name right.

Taking to the stage to present the evening’s first award at the annual bash, grime emcee and local Brixton boy revealed the nominations.

And as he opened the envelope, he gave the big reveal: ‘The award goes to Loyle Corner.’

That’s CARNER bro… not Corner.

Looking genuinely surprised by the award – which saw him beat off the likes of Ed Sheeran and Stormzy – Loyle couldn’t contain his disbelief at his accolade.

‘What the f**k! I didn’t see coming it all. This is for my mum and brother and my missus’, he said as he shyly collected the award.

But in true Loyle style, he used his big moment to raise awareness of dyslexia and ADHD – two personal subjects that the London rapper often refers to within his music.

‘If you’ve got ADHD and Dyslexia, keep answering back and keep answering questions. ADHD is a superpower,’ he rounded off before quickly exiting the stage.

It’s been a huge year for Loyle, which saw him release his debut album in January 2017, as well as earning a nomination for the Mercury Music Prize – all before he kicked a sexist fan out of his show for insulting his support act in October last year.

Congratulations from, Loyle!
