Little Simz has been announced as the recipient of the prestigious Pioneer Award at this year’s Association of Independent Music (AIM) Awards.
The rapper, who is also set to perform at next month’s virtual ceremony, becomes the youngest recipient of the award. It follows on from her triumph at the NME Awards 2020, where she picked up the Best British Album gong for ‘Grey Area’.
Simz said: “Delighted to receive the Pioneer Award this year and excited to perform. Big thank you and love to AIM Awards!”
AJ Tracey has also been confirmed as the winner of the Innovator prize and will also perform at the ceremony.
It’s great to see so many independent artists making waves in the commercial music scene. We’ll be celebrating with them as we tune into the AIM awards 2020.
