Frank Ocean has been named Man of The Year by MTV U with Malala Yousafzai named Woman of The Year as MTV dubbed them “two millennials, who showed unbelievable strength so that their voices could be heard.”

This year Frank Ocean went from the musical genius behind the scenes to a Grammy nominated artist. Not only has his debut album “Channel Orange” won over critics and fans alike, but his brave admission of loving another man has broken boundaries within the hip-hop and R&B community, gaining Ocean overwhelming support for his honesty.

If all the album of the year recognition and Grammy nominations wasn’t up this is just another reminder of how special this year has been for Frank Ocean and the power of Channel ORANGE.
