In 2021, she won the award for Best New International Act at the BET Awards.
Mensah was born on 18 November 1992 in Hackney, where she was raised. She is of Ghanaian descent. She resided on a street given the nickname “Murder mile” due to high rates of crime and conflict. Runway views her upbringing and experiences as her having to have “thick skin”, resilience and “having instilled a fight in me” which she is thankful for. At the age of 9, Runway experienced bullying and colourism which caused her to bleach her skin and have a negative chemical reaction to the product. Runway credits those moments as shaping her both as a person and an artist. Runway discussed the positive shift in attitude regarding her skin when she went to a college in south London where she met model Leomie Anderson who encouraged Runway to take pictures of herself and “take charge of our situations”.
