The 16th MOBO Awards were held at Glasglow’s SECC this evening with Jessie J winning four of her five nominated categories: Best UK Act, Best Album, Best Newcomer and Best Song (in association with PRS for Music).
Live performers at the awards included London rappers Wretch 32 and Professor Green, as well as Jessie J herself. There was a very emotional moment as Dionne Bromfield, goddaughter of the late Amy Winehouse, sung a rendition of Winehouse’s Love Is A Losing Game.
All categories were voted for by the public.
In celebration of the event, M has put on MOBO Week, with exclusive interviews from previous winners and nominees Beverley Knight and Wretch 32. Watch the Beverley interview here, and find out what Wretch 32 has to say here.
