Ghanaian born UK artist sway has been named Best UK Act ahead of the first Black Entertainment Television (BET) Hip Hop awards

The 23-year-old, London-native who was nominated for this year's Mercury music prize, fought off stiff competition from Dizzee Rascal, Blak Twang, Kano and Plan B to scoop the title which was nominated by BBC 1Xtra and MTV Base audiences in the UK

Sway has been tearing up the UK grime/hip hop scene with his tongue and cheek style of rap, in 2005 he was awarded Best Hip-Hop Artist at the MOBOs despite still being unsigned, not having released an album, and being up against rap heavyweights 50 Cent and The Game. A decision, which caused some controversy (I guess some folks still think that UK artist can’t compete in the same arena as American artists) and to those that think like that all I can say is you gotta give respect when respect is due.

And if you aint got his album yet “this is my demo” what you waiting for!!
