Following shortly behind is J Hus who is up for 4 awards including Best Male Act, Best Album, Best Song for Did You See,  and Best video with Spirit. It’s not a surprise that both the two artist who have been constantly the talk of the Grime and UK Rap scene this year are getting recognised for the music that they have put out.

Among them a handful of great artists such as Sampha, Chip, Skepta, Giggs, Wretch 32, Lolyle Carner, Wiley, AJ Tracey and much more are up for awards this year.

And not only are the males representing we have some of the female artists that we have been loving also representing including  Nadia Rose, Jorja Smith, Mabel, Stefflon Don coming through in the newcomers categories.

Females such as Jorja Smith, Lady Leshurr, Little Simz, Mabel, Nadia Rose, NAO, Ray BLK,  Stefflon Don are also killing it with the female act categories.

The large range of talent and music that we have heard this year  means that this years Mobo Awards is sure to be a good event. I’m sure whoever takes home the awards will be much deserving. More than anything it will be a night of celebrating all that urban music has brought this year.
