Avicii, who passed away in April 2018, received a posthumous award at the Grammis Awards in Sweden, as Mixmag reports.

According to Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, Bergling speech states: “As Tim’s father, I am very honoured to receive this great prize. Tim was a friendly person with humour and very serious, humble, and stubborn as sin. When it came to the music, he was on the verge of obsessed to reach the optimal he had imagined.”

Avicii’s father concluded his speech with a message for his son,: “Tim, we think your music will live and continue to delight people”.
