Liam Gallagher says the Godlike Genius prize he was given at last night’s NME Awards was long overdue.

Rapper J Hus beat the likes of Lorde, Wolf Alice and Gorillaz to the best album prize at last night’s NME Awards, for his debut Common Sense.

Other winners included Alt J who were named best British band, Charli XCX who got best single for Boys – and Liam Gallagher who was given the Godlike Genius honour.
