Skepta sales surge after Mercury win

Sketpa beat David Bowie and The 1975 to win the Mercury Prize

Sales of Skepta’s album Konnichiwa have surged 174% after his Mercury Prize win last week.

His fourth album has climbed 40 places to number 13 in this week’s official albums chart.

Skepta beat David Bowie and Radiohead to win the £25,000 prize, which is awarded annually to what critics judge the best British album of the year.

Konnichiwa covers topics including police harassment and his anger at British politics.

Bastille held the number one album spot for a second week with Wild World.

The highest new entry was Led Zeppelin’s The Complete BBC Sessions, a collection of the group’s five live sessions recorded in 1969, which debuted at number three.

Usher scored his sixth UK top 10 album with Hard II Love, which landed at number seven, while Seth Lakeman’s Ballads of the Broken Few, debuted at number 18.
