Well folks its almost that time again …..
This year is set to be the MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Awards’ most exciting yet as 18th anniversary celebrations kick off on Monday, June 24 in Glasgow – the host city for MOBO Awards 2013.
Inspirational MOBO founder and CEO, Kanya King MBE will be joined by star performers, past and present, including chart topping girl group Stooshe and the legendary music maker, Jazzie B of Soul II Soul who won an award at the first ever show in 1996.
Reflecting on 18 years of incredible MOBO memories Jazzie B says “Thank you MOBO for Soul II Soul’s first ever UK award way back in ’96! We had been in the UK industry for a while before we were awarded for Soul II Soul’s achievements and MOBO was the one that recognised this. It was an iconic moment for Soul II Soul.”
Stooshe also paid tribute to the MOBO Awards and commented: “It’s such an honour to be celebrating 18 years of MOBO Awards success. Our appearance at the show last year was truly instrumental in building our profile and music careers and we are really looking forward to this year’s anniversary event at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow. It’s gonna be an amazing celebration!”
Chart toppers, Rudimental and the dynamic Iggy Azalea are the first names announced to perform at this year’s ceremony which has seen the world’s biggest urban music names over the years and offered a first stage to many UK artists including the likes of Rita Ora and Emeli Sandé
