Today I received an MBE from HRH The Prince Of Wales and I’m happy And emotional because the 16 year old me would now have someone to identify with. Today my mum would have been so proud, the sacrifices she made and the struggle we went through was character building and gave me me so much drive, focus & strength to keep pushing forward, cos that struggle was REAL and it made me a workaholic that wanted to push myself to greater things. UK music is amazing and I’m so happy to be a part of it. Thanks Skeppy, Shorty, Max, Sam, Radha, Paddy, Felix, T, BBK, Jonathan B and everyone that welcomed me into their world and has been on this journey with us. Special shout out to my big bro @prettyvacantcyde for the call that day to say I should accept this. Love and more Greatness to all.
Pushing her artiste and the Grime culture
Grace Ladoja has been working with the UK Grime icon, Skepta since 2014. In that time, she has overseen his transition from the popular face of grime to an iconic, heavily-personified figure with a strong following outside the UK.
Grace, who is the daughter of a former Oyo State governor, Rashidi Ladoja, has built a reputation as one of the main catalysts in the emergence of the UK grime scene on the international stage.
In addition, she is also seen as one of the UK’s most promising media executives, thanks to her work with artistes like FKA Twigs and popular brands like Supreme.
