LONDON RAPPER Skepta landed a total of three nominations at the upcoming Brit Awards.
The Mercury Prize-winning star won nods in the Best British Male, Best Breakthrough and Best Album categories.
Skepta will go up against Craig David, Kano, Michael Kiwanuka and David Bowie, who he beat at the Mercury Prize, for the big Best British Male title on the night.
While Skepta didn’t respond directly to the nomination, UK actor Arnold Jorge tweeted: “This how u gotta celebrate man like @Skepta getting nominated for more than 1 Brit award.”
To which Skepta replied: “HAHAHA.”
Meanwhile, Beyonce and her younger sister Solange Knowles are both up for best international female, after releasing albums about race and politics last year.
There were calls for a boycott of last year’s Brits, after BAME (black, Asian and minority ethnic) artists were absent from all but the international categories.
This year’s nominations has seen an improvement in the representation of both women and people from ethnic minority backgrounds.
The Brits will take place on February 22 in London.
