Mobo’s 2016

Friday 4th November saw the Mobo Awards take place in Glasgow. As always there was something going on! KISS presenters Rickie Williams and Melvin Odoom hosted this years event which sounded mad. Here is a full listing of the winners:

  • Best Male Act – Craig David
  • Best Female Act – Lady Leshurr
  • Best Newcomer – WSTRN
  • Best Album – Kano: Made In The Manor
  • Best Hip Hop Act – Section Boyz
  • Best Song – Abra Cadabra ft. Krept & Konan: Robbery (remix)
  • Best Video – Nadia Rose: SKWOD
  • Best R&B/Soul – Shakka
  • Best Grime Act (In Association with BBC Radio 1Xtra): Chip
  • Best International Act: Drake
  • Best Jazz Act: Esperanza Spalding
  • Best Gospel Act: Guvna B
  • Best Reggae Act: Popcaan
  • Best African Act: Wiz Kid
  • Paving The Way: Nicola Adams MBE and Ms. Dynamite


R&B trio WSTRN were announced as the winners for ‘Best Song’, have a winners speech and had the award for an hour before the organizers of the night revealed the prize should have gone to MC Abra Cadabra and Krept & Konan. Mobo oragnisers blamed it on a “production error” whilst Rickie and Melvin had to deliver the news “someone picked up the wrong envelope”.

I am so happy that Kano won ‘Best Album’ for Man In The Mirror as that is one of my favourite albums of 2016. In my opinion I don’t think Chip should have got ‘Best Grime Act’ but that’s just me, I am happy that Section Boyz got ‘Best Hip Hop Act’.
