Many of us know and love Steve Angello solely for his music, but outside of the studio and festivals, the Swede is a devoted father and has always tried to use his fame and fortune to improve the lives of others. This effort recently got the recognition it deserved, as Steve and his Size Foundation won the prestigious Latin American MTV Chiuku award for their dedication to providing the tools for education to children with scarce resources.
Speaking about the award, Angello said: “I feel very happy and honoured to receive an award for something that usually goes unnoticed. Being recognised for our work means a lot to us and everything we do is to help others improve their lives. MTV has given us a powerful voice and together we can make a positive difference in the world! Again, we thank you. We really appreciate the support!” The award is given to musicians and artists who use their influence to help raise awareness of humanitarian issues and to fulfil the dreams of the underprivileged through the ‘Together We’re Important‘ campaign , with Steve Aoki having previously won the award last year.
From all of us at We Rave You, congratulations Steve Angello!
