On the 22nd of October, UK’s most prestigious awards for Music of Black Origin (MOBOs) took place at London’s Wembley Arena. Winning the most awards was (a total of four including Best Album, Best Song, Best Male Act) Sam Smith, who has had a tremendous year so far with his hit single ‘Stay With Me’ from his debut album In The Lonley Hour. Coming home to Africa, the nominees were Afrikan Boy, Davido, DJ Clock, Dr Sid, Fuse ODG, Mafikozolo, Mista Silva, Tiwa Savage, Wiz Kid, Yemi Alade (great acknowledgement for the Johnny crooner) with Fuse ODG winning again this year. Here are some of the pictures from the red carpet – Eve, Emma Nyra and Ubi Franklin, David Hayes, Tinnie Tempah, Jessie J and many more.
Outstanding style on the red carpet goes to British singer, Jessie J in her sparkly jumpsuit a nod to disco divas in the 80s, who also picked up an award for the best female act and opened the evening with a sexy performance of her new single ‘Bang Bang’. Emma Nyra’s took a page out of the goth book for her make up with a new hair do – short bob in black wearing underwear lace corset as an outerwear – its a mixed reaction for her look. Anyway, enjoy the red carpet looks and tell us what you think.
