Parks picked up the awards for UK Independent Breakthrough and Best Independent Album (for ‘Collapsed In Sunbeams’) last night, while ENNY won Best Independent Track (for ‘Peng Black Girls’) and One To Watch.
Parks said: “I want to say a big, big thank you to my fans, to my team. I’m grateful to be growing every day as an independent artist and this period has been so difficult, so chaotic and so confusing, so to be able to bring people light in this time of need has been really special.”
