M.I.A. received a MBE from Prince William



M.I.A. got her MBE for funding Youth Action International’s work to help youth break out of cycles of violence and poverty in war-torn African communities.

M.I.A. wrote: "Today I'm accepting this in honor of my mother who worked for minimum wage to give us a better life. As a working class first generation immigrant it's great to be recognised for my contribution. Having freedom to speak my truth and to do it through music has helped me speak for those who do not have those privileges. I will continue fight for those who are silenced or persecuted by others."
