Radio 1 caught up with shocked Ms Dynamite after her big Mercury Music Prize win and was asked if she genuinely believed that someone else was gonna get it. “Don’t get me wrong,” she said. “I wanted to win! Who wouldn’t want to win? But I didn’t think I would – it feels mad, I feel crazy right now. It feels mad just be up here, like, just to be nominated and going through everything and being here with all the other artists. I’ve been feeling all night, like, what am I doing here, I only started a year ago! But to win, that’s just mad.” Audio at bbc.co.uk/radio1 has since been removed.
