Hatari win music award and address Iceland's Prime Minister

 The Icelandic Music Awards took place with rapper Elli Grill winning album of the year, GDNR best female artist and Hatari, Iceland's Eurovision hopefuls winning the award for performer of the year. True to form, Hatari  addressed Prime Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir in their speech of thanks. 

Singer Matthías Tryggvi Haraldsson asked, "Prime Minister Katrín, we are your loyal supporters, but we feel that it's time to explain to the nation whether Iceland is a part of those countries who abide by the rule law, who adhere to human rights and democracy. We are a bit confused."
