I can honestly say I am truly excited about the Mobo Awards 2013, as I had the honour and pleasure of playing an active role in the nominations, as one of the first ever Mobo Nominations Panel.
When the nomination final decisions were announce I admit there were a few disappointments, as not all suggestions were considered, but overall I am soooo pleased to see acts such as Shakka, Jacob Banks, Wretch 32, Rudimental and of course the inclusion of rap duo Krept & Konan being apart of the Best New comers category, amongst mainly singers. In fact I was over the moon.
As the Awards in Scotland fast approach on the 19th October, Everyone is talking about the performances and this year has me written all over it!
The Mobo Awards Line for 2013 is…
Soulful singer Laura Mvula, Australia’s finest female rapper Iggy Azalea, Crow Diving Floor Filler group Rudimental, Soft serenading Jahmene Douglas, Dynamic frobeats star Fuse ODG, one of the UK’s finest Tinie Tempah and to top it off LEGENDARY So Solid Crew!
