Mobo awards nominees and line-up

13th October 2008

This year musicians from the US and UK will line-up up to play the prestigious MOBO Awards at Wembley Arena on Wednesday October 15th. The Mobo's are the brainchild of Kanya King the internationally recognised entrepreneur and innovator.

British superstar Estelle is determined to steal the show and looks set to shine on the night after receiving 5 nominations for this year’s Awards. The Londoner has achieved huge acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic with her album Shine this year.

The 13th annual MOBO Awards will take place at Wembley Arena in London on Wednesday 15th October. Spice Girl Mel B will co-host this year’s awards for the first time since 1999 alongside Rev Run, founding member of iconic hip-hop outfit Run DMC.
