Speech Debelle has won the 2009 Barclaycard Mercury Prize for her album Speech Therapy.

The London-based rapper collected the prize at the Mercury Ceremony at the Grovesnor House last night, fending off competition from the likes of Bat For Lashes, Florence & The Machine, The Horrors and Friendly Fires. The phrase "damp squib" comes to mind.
