mobo

While my fellow bloggers/journalists sipped champagne and wolfed down West Indian cuisine at the MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Awards nominations launch party, held this year at London’s Mayfair Hotel, I was lying in the dentist’s chair having a tooth extracted!

Sad I know! (LOL)

1) Who thought it would be a good idea to include Lady GaGa in this years nominations list???? I can’t…… I just can’t… not tonight…..

2) Sean Paul nominated for a Best Reggae gong. Oh purleese… his new album hasn’t even dropped yet… or has it? Every year you can bet that “safe” Sean Paul will be included in the nominations list for Best Reggae act. RIDICULOUS!

3) Beverley Knight? I’m confused… apart from that one single/video (I can’t even remember the name of the track) I posted several weeks back what else has she released this year?

4) Drake! So off the back of ONE relatively popular single he receives a nomination? (shaking head in despair).

I’m too tired to go on!

Your thoughts please……

  1. *eLDee. Where’s the koko master? The blackest of devils (Wande Coal)? They really need to stop with the Single Ladies video.

  2. Seriously BLACK MUSIC? Minus the African/Jazz/Gospel categories which part…when will black people stop thinking that anything that they do musically is actually black music. this is a glorified pop music awards night for black people who make pop music.
    If they just stopped calling to Music of Black origin I’d be very supportive.

    No other race will bend twist and turn their origins so much for fear of being too ethnic. *Reclaimin rant goes elsewhere* Seriously, have you seen the official entertainment for Notting Hill Gate carnival? The Caribbean element is scarcely existent. Every other race and culture gets a gig in it though! When I went to Europes’s largest latin festival the other day, i didn’t see a need from the Latin community to accomodate Lady effin Gaga or the like.
    Where black entertainment is concerned we must forever accomodate and not just be allowed to invite people in to celebrate our various cultures with authenticity- cha!
