K'naan, a Somali-Canadian hip-hop artist whose political lyrics often take us to his war ravaged homeland, has won a music award from the BBC. The broadcaster's annual Radio 3 Awards, designed to celebrate the best in “world music”, have selected K'naan as “best newcomer” of the year. This honour comes close to two years after his first full-length record, The Dusty Foot Philosopher was released in 2005.
