Zara Larsson and Tove Lo reigned supreme at the 2018 Swedish music awards, the Grammis. The pair won the top prizes on a night of protest against the treatment of women in the music industry.

International star Zara Larsson won best artist, best album, and best song.

Björn Larsson at Swedish Radio's culture news department, says the 20-year-old star behind hits such as "Only You" and "Lush Life" is a fantatsic role model for young girls.

"She means a lot for young women who want to be artists. She is very outspoken. If you see her and you are a young girl, you think she is brave and think I can be like that too," says Larsson.
