The Reggae, Jazz, and Best African Act categories were not televised last night. I don’t know why.
This morning’s media coverage is a sight to behold. The mainstream media (TV and print) has blatantly ignored the artists of African origin (apart from Ella Eyre who is of mixed heritage), who won and performed and have instead decided to solely focus on Sam Smith, Jessie J, Prof Green, randoms and Tulisa Contostavlos .
An event celebrating black music and black artists have been more or less been erased from last night’s proceedings. You could not make this up (hahaha). The blatant disdain that the British mainstream media has for us is actually bordering on comical now.
As for MOBO founder Kanya King, I believe that Mrs MBE stopped caring about her brand years ago and now only cares about pleasing record label executives ( *coughs* Universal Music Group), the media and Middle England.
Last night was once again a complete and utter farce and we have another three years of this to come.
