His debut album, Process, was crowned the victor of the coveted prize during a ceremony on Thursday (14Sep17), and he dedicated his victory to his parents. After what presenter Laure Laverne described as the "longest deliberation ever in the history of the prize", actor and the evening's special guest presenter Idris Elba revealed the victor on the evening of Thursday, 14 September.

'Thank you to the judges who thought my album was good enough!'

This year's judges included the journalists Phil Alexander and Harriet Gibsone, and the musicians Marcus Mumford, Jessie Ware and Lianne La Havas. Speaking at a press conference held shortly after the ceremony ended, Sampha again referenced his parents having dedicated the award to them from the stage.

Sampha said the prestigious award would be a self-esteem boost after he had "poured my heart and soul into the record". "When you discover this record you'll want to live with it, share it and celebrate it". No doubt winning the Mercury Award will lend it's hand to doing something about that, but it might surprise you to know that you're probably been listening to his vocals since 2011. Although they don't always get it right and there have been some forgettable winners as well.
