Mercury Prize winner Little Simz to perform at 2023 EE Bafta Film Awards
Mercury Prize winner Little Simz will perform at the EE Bafta Film Awards, organizers have announced.
The London-born rapper said she was “delighted and honored” to be part of the event, which will take place on February 19.
The nominations for the 2023 ceremony were announced last month, with Netflix’s anti-war epic All Quiet On The Western Front leading the way with 14 nominations.
Martin McDonagh’s The Banshees Of Inisherin and Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert’s Everything Everywhere All At Once followed closely behind with 10 nominations each.
After the announcement, Little Simz said, “I am delighted and honored to perform at this year’s EE BAFTA Film Awards. Thank you for inviting me. A lot of love.
The artist’s 2021 album Sometimes I May Be Introvert has catapulted her to the big leagues, winning a string of Mobo, Ivor Novello and Brit awards.
In October, Little Simz beat competition from artists including Grammy winners Harry Styles and Wet Leg to win the coveted Mercury Prize.
