MOBO Awards 2024: Performers And Hosts Announced

The 26th edition of the MOBO Awards, which celebrates music of black origin in the UK and beyond, is set to take place at the Utilita Arena in Sheffield on February 7th. The event’s organisers have now confirmed that comedian Babatúndé Aléshé and presenter Indiyah Polack will be hosting the awards ceremony. The nominees for the MOBO Awards were announced last December, with Little Mix and Stormzy leading the way with four nominations each. Central Cee, PinkPantheress, J Hus, and Raye are the front-runners, with three nominations each. Wizkid, Davido, and Burna Boy were nominated in the best African act category.

In addition to the award presentations, the ceremony will be packed with live performances from established and up-and-coming artists. The MOBO Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to the iconic Soul II Soul, while DJ Spoony will celebrate 30 years of UK garage with a unique set. Other live acts are yet to be announced. Last year’s event occurred at London’s OVO Arena Wembley, and among the winners were Little Simz, Knucks, Central Cee, PinkPantheress, and the late Jamal Edwards. The event showcased an incredible lineup of talented artists from various genres, captivating the audience with electrifying performances. It was a bittersweet moment as the late Jamal Edwards was posthumously honoured for his immense contributions to the music industry.
