The annual MOBO (Music Of Black Origin) 2008 nominations launch party took place last night (September 10th) in London, and here are some more pics…….

[The MOBO Awards ceremony will take place on October 15th]

80s childrens TV personality Timmy Mallet with Skepta. Is Timmy about to release a Hip Hop/R&B inspired track or something? Because his presence at the nominations launch baffles me.

    I realise that I actually don’t like music of black origin if this is anything to go by..

    reclaim for president!!

    9ice to win best African Act – Gongo Aso.

    @ Reclaiming, I hear ya. These type of awards shows are never gonna be the Real Deal, not in my eyes anyway. On a commercial tip though , it’s better than nada.

    SOME of these artists, especially the London based ones deserve some sort of recognition and if it wasn’t for MOBO, they wouldn’t be getting jack sh-t anywhere else.

    Timmy Mallet WTF !!! I mean really…

    Na only Naija way dey Africa? Actually Agnes, I don’t want 9ice to win, he was EVERYwhere, it was like Toni B’s he wasn’t Man Enuff. I know it’s his time to shine & all but he cud have dimmed d torch just a lil. Asa to win. Oh & do the mean D’banj AND Mo Hit All Stars or D’banj’s MHAS?

    “Na only Naija way dey Africa?” can you imagine, lovely lovely. It seems like all of a sudden we have just blown up.

    9ice all the way for me 9ice, 9ice, 9ice. I play that album all weekend long, whilst i am cleaning and doing my creative thang.

    My next choice would be D Banj, as he is unique and fresssh. Thhe others are great too though.

    To win, 9iceeeeeeeee or DBanj, I would be happy either way.
    Re Dbanj & MHAS, I know !!!, school boy errors just shows lack of knowledge & professionalism. Smuccch !!!

    If you haven’t heard the new song called American Boys from Estelle along with Kanye West well you probably live under a rock. Estelle came out of no where and is know this popular artist. In fact she has 4 other songs out. Check them out by going to http://kiisfm.com/cc-common/ondemand/player.html?apid=4716&mid=191292

    This site is UK made, we were introduced lto Estelle LONG before American Boy dropped. Maybe for you she just came out of no where, but not for us luv.

    It amazes me once again how DJ COLIN FRANCIS is NOT NOMINATED for Best Club DJ when he is more active than most of nominated DJs playing in all the TOP West End clubs every week as well as all over the Globe AND is the BEST DJ from the UK by FAR…. MOBOs please wake up and do your research. Your award show is becoming a farce!!
