Time Out says
Back in 1996, Londoner Kanya King took it upon herself to create an awards ceremony that would effectively recognise the talent of Black British musicians, remortgaging her house to make it a reality. It went on to become an essential part of the UK music scene, pushing more home-grown hip hop and grime artists into the mainstream. The ceremony has been on hiatus since 2017, but will be making a comeback this week with a streamed show presented by Maya Jama and musician/Youtuber ChunkZ. There will also be performances from Headie One, Tiwa Savage, Ms Banks and Kojey Radical.
Look out for 30-year-old North West London MC Nines who has received five MOBO nominations for 2020: Best Male Act, Best Hip Hop Act, Album of The Year, Video of the Year and Best Album.
