Mobos Take Place in Glasgow

22nd October 2013

The Mobo Awards were held in Glasgow at the SSE hydro and it was the 18th Anniversary of the Awards, which were founded by keynote speaker Kanya King. Stars such as Stooshe, Katy B and Tinie Tempah made their way up to Glasgow for the award show.

The 2013 Mobo awards were a huge success and the first award was taken by new performer, Naughty Boy for ‘Best Song’, in his speech he thanked singer, Gabrielle for inspiring him as a child. DJ and radio presenter, Trevor Nelson was at the awards and spoke to Craig David about his thoughts on the UK music industry.

Kanya made an appearance at the award show to present the BeMOBO award, the only non-music award and it recognises organisations who represent Mobo’s community values. The award was given to the Stephen Lawrence Trust and Baroness Doreen Lawrence was there to accept for her exceptional work since the murder of her son twenty years ago.

The show ended with a performance from So Solid, who let the audience relive the excitement of their 2001 Mobo performance when they sang ’21 seconds’ and according to the Mobo team it was ‘a fantastic way to end a great anniversary celebration!’
