She said, “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 so much drive, focus and 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,” Ladoja said

Ladoja is a key figure in the grime music scene and is considered one of the fast rising music executives out today.
