For an award which was basically created to flex the diversity in urban music and culture, The Mobo Awards are doing pretty great in every aspect. From the inclusiveness in their nominations over to the recent line up for the event. Yesterday the MOBO Awards took to twitter to announce their hosts and performers, but that’s not half of it.

From Davido, Cardi B, Stefflon Don to Tokio Myers. If you look too closely you may, or may not connect the dots on the one thing these artists have in common (that’s okay, it’s my job to know these things).
For Tokio Myers the London-born pianist, 2017 saw his rise to fame, after he emerged winner at the Britain’s Got Talent 2017, For Cardi B this was the year she broke the record as a female rapper, by going number 1 on Billboard without features, and for Davido the Nigerian artist, with his songs garnering airplay in the European mainstream, getting recognition , (he has been getting recognised but this time around just enough to win his first ever MTV EMA.)
The Award night will be going down in Leeds on the 29th of November. Sadly nominations are closed but we’re rooting for Davido, Wizkid, Tiwa Savage and your faves as well.
