It’s been reported that rapper Nelly will headline this years MOBO (Music Of Black Origin) awards, which will take place on the 20th October in Liverpool.
If this is true then why have Nelly headline the event? If this was 2000/2002 then it would make sense because he was at the height of his popularity then. But booking him as the headline act in 2010 makes no sense.
When was the last time he released any new music?
I wonder how many US acts declined the offer to headline this event before the organisers struck ‘gold’ with Nelly, and how far down the list was the rapper?
