Well the ‘highly anticipated’ MOBO Awards ended an hour ago, and they should never hold the event in Liverpool again. The only time the audience showed any real enthusiasm was when premiership footballers ( I cannot remember his name) Tim Cahill and Tim Howard appeared on stage to present an award, and when Billy Ocean collected a lifetime achievement award. But other than that they were pretty mute.
US rapper Nelly performed his new single but surprisingly didn’t close the show (I thought he was supposed to be the headline act).
But anyway rapper Giggs who I was shocked to see and other UK acts (including Tinie Tempah, Tinchy Stryder and Prof Green) closed the show.
As usual I caused offense via Twitter when I described the rest of the performance as ‘noise and a mess’.
I guess all future invitations to “A-list” industry events / 90s babies Grime conventions have now once again been revoked!
Ha ha ha!
But hey this is Mad News – Talkin reckless about the UK scene since 2008.
Anyway check out the list of winners below.
