MOBO Awards

So roll up, roll up, and get yourself a list of MOBO winners while they’re still warm.

And since you all asked so nicely, I’m going to throw in a free quote from MOBO boss Kanya King, talking after the eighteenth edition of the Music Of Black Origin awards show in Glasgow on Saturday night.

Look, here it is: “It has been an exciting road this year that has seen artists both new and established demonstrate their worth and talent. For us at MOBO, the awards are about recognising the exciting and inspiring artists out there and giving them a platform to perform on. This year has been a great representation of the wealth of talent MOBO music has to offer. It’s an amazing industry to work in and we love being at the forefront honouring the past and supporting the future”.
