Young Fathers have won the Scottish Album of the Year Award for their most-recent full-length ‘Cocoa Sugar’.
The serial album award hoovers – who won the prize back in 2014 for ‘Tape Two’ and have also have a Mercury trophy safely secured in their downstairs loo – received the gong at a ceremony on Thursday night (6th September).
Alloysious Massaquoi said “We want to thank everyone who voted, it’s fantastic for Scotland and diversity in music. This is a total surprise and an honour for us to win it twice and make history. We are obviously a multi-racial group who stand for openness, kindness, and love.”
They beat out a shortlist also including Mogwai and Franz Ferdinand – the latter of whom won the public vote.
