Double whammy for hip-hop sensation Linda Pira
Swedish hip-hop artist Linda Pira was the big winner at this year’s P3 Gold Awards, taking home the prizes for Hip-Hop/Soul Artist of the Year and for Best Song.
In her speech accepting the award for Best Song, Pira said: “This is so sick… We had so much fun making this song. The fact we’re standing here now… it’s too much… I can’t speak.”
The awards ceremony was held at Gothenburg’s Scandinavium arena on Saturday night, with live performances by José González, Tove Lo, Joy, Little Jinder and more.
The P3 Gold Awards are given out annually by Swedish Radio’s youth station P3 and the awards show is held in front of a live audience and broadcast on Swedish Radio and Swedish Television.
