Abiona, who won Best African Act at last month’s MOBO Awards in Glasgow, had been nominated for a total of six categories.

 Diplo, Laura Mvula and Avicii were also among the winners at the event, winning Best Producer, Best Female Artist and Best Electronic Act respectively, while grime emcee Ghetts was named Best Male Artist.

Kiss was awarded Best Radio Station, before London duo Krept and Konan were named Best Group at the event, attended by former Lib Dem MP Lembit Opik, X Factor contestants Kingsland Road and boxer Paul ‘Silky’ Jones. 2012 X Factor runner-up Jahmene Douglas, who performed at the event, won Best Newcomer.

The event was the 11th annual Urban Music Awards
