Michael Dapaah praised ‘older brother’ Mo Gilligan on her way to becoming the first black British star to host the event Brit Award.

It was confirmed last month that the comedian and cast member of The Masked Singer, 33 years old, will preside over the ceremony the first when it came back on February 8, 2022 and he described it as an ‘absolute privilege’.

Funny people Jack Whitehall, 33 years old, has been presenting the star-studded annual event since 2018, but he announced in September that he would ‘help’ due to overseas filming commitments.

Michael, who has hailed the star as an ‘inspirational figure’, has expressed how proud he is of Mo’s latest achievement.

Talking to Metro.co.uk, he said: ‘I remember when we used to go through ideas in my smart car and we used to take a video of our insta life at his mom’s house.

‘Mo, he’s really a big brother, an inspirational figure and I’m really proud of him. I’m so glad he got this opportunity.

Jack Whitehall has done his job well for the past four years, but I think it’s just a matter of someone else standing up. ‘

It also marks a historic moment when Mo will be the first black British star to lead the British team; RuPaul previously hosted the show alongside Elton John in 1994.

Michael, who stars in JD’s latest Christmas commercial that celebrates youth culture and stars YouTube star KSI and rapper Little Simz, also expressed how proud he is to see the talent Black ability is recognized in Great Britain today.

‘There are also a lot of talented Black women doing their thing, Maya Jama obviously.

‘We have all these fresh faces in the UK with the potential to take it somewhere it’s never been photographed before. It’s great to be in the middle of what’s happening right now. ‘

JD incorporated music stars in their blockbuster Christmas commercial for a one-off live stream on TikTok. For more information, please visit jd.co.uk
