2017 MOBO Awards Winners List | Music of Black Origin (MOBO)

The MOBO Awards stands for “Music of Black Origin” and was established in 1996 by Kanya King and Andy Ruffell. The MOBO Award show is held annually in the United Kingdom to recognise artists of any ethnicity or nationality performing black music. In 2009, the awards ceremony was held for the first time in Glasgow. Prior to that, it had been held in London. In 2011, the ceremony returned for a second time to Scotland. The awards then moved to Leeds for the first time in 2015.

The Mobo Awards are back for 2017, this year in Leeds at the First Direct Arena.

J Hus received four nods in categories including ‘Best Male’, ‘Best Album’, ‘Best Song’ and ‘Best Video’, while the ‘Best Newcomer’ category is one of the strongest yet with Mabel, Not3s, Dave, Stefflon Don and more great artists nominated.
