Ivy Adenuga has penned her life story, according to the rapper, which details the lengths she went to to avoid violence in her homeland before she became a mum.

Speaking at the Ivor Novello Awards in London on Thursday (18May17), where Skepta picked up two major trophies, he said, "She's written a book. It's finished. Everybody will be able to read about her travels from Nigeria in the civil war.

"She can't believe it so she had to write it down."

And the rap star can't wait to read the book when it's published: "I really want people to see where my mum has come from."
