Wiley aka the Godfather of Grime has been honoured with an MBE (Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire).
Who would have thought that the British monarchy will ever honour a Grime artist! The pioneer was all suited up on Friday when he picked up his award from Prince William. Real name Richard Cowie was honoured for his services to music.
Back in December 2017 when the New Years Honours list first came out, Wiley told UK’s Press Association that…..
“I’m honoured to be receiving an MBE. It feels like the school grade I wanted and didn’t get but now I’m finally there. I would like to thank my mother and father plus all family members and friends for being there for me when I needed them”
Congratulations to the legendary Wiley
