Krept & Konan Crowned MTV Brand New For 2015 Winners!
...and a massive well done to Saint Raymond who places a (very) close second...
Saint Raymond kept the duo on their toes with both acts earning over 60,000 votes each from their determined fans but the Don't Waste My Time rappers just pipped the singer-songwriter to land the crown as this year's victors.
On winning, the pair said: "Thank you everyone who voted, all the fans that re-tweeted when I asked them to re-tweet, all the artists that helped support us, big up friends, family, thank you MTV for supporting us on MTV Brand New, Emporio Armani Diamonds, of course!
"We won, so everybody that voted can get free chicken, just follow us on Twitter to find out exactly how…just follow us to the chicken….we’re going to celebrate, have a party, free chicken.
"You think we’re joking, but we’re not joking, we’ll have free chicken, waffles, doughnuts, everything. You are all invited to sit down and have dinner with us to celebrate MTV Brand New the victory of Krept & Konan."
Name the date guys, we're there!
The duo now join the ranks of The Vamps, Conor Maynard,Justin Bieber and more as previous winners of our annual fan-voted poll of talent we're sure will be causing a storm on the UK music scene this year.
The news comes after two incredible nights of live performances in London where on Wednesday, pop superstar and 2012 MTV Brand New nominee Charli XCX, along with 2015 shortlist acts James Bay and Sinead Harnett, blew the crowds away with their performances at the Islington Assembly Hall.
The following night, electro chart toppers Clean Bandit and MTV Brand New 2015 shortlist acts Years & Years and Saint Raymond then performed at the same venue, with the entire crowd up dancing on their feet.
Congratulations again to the rest of this year's nominees Becky Hill, George The Poet, James Bay, Melissa Steel, Nothing But Thieves, Sinead Harnett, Sunset Sons, Years & Years and of course our Unsigned winners Of Empires.
