The past months have lead up to this moment of knowing if you’re favourite nominees managed a win for the night. The beautiful Bristolian, Maya Jama was an amazing edition the night as the youngest ever to host the MOBO Awards as she joined former JLS, Marvin Humes presenting the awards.

Her partner, Stormzy was also the big winner of the night, scooping up ‘best male arist’, best grime artist’ and ‘best album’ for chart topping Gang Signs & Prayer. During his acceptance speech, he said that he was most proud of the award “because I put my life into my album.”

“You watch the Mobos growing up so this is an honour. I’m so proud. This is dreams come true,” he said following his win, before hitting the stage to perform with Krept & Konan.

As the only female winner of the night, Stefflon Don picked up the award for Best Female

“Even if I wasn’t up for no nominations or awards, this has been an amazing year for me anyway,” she said.

Other performances on the night included sets from Cardi B, Yungen and Britain’s Got Talent winner Tokio Myers.

Jeremy Corbyn made his mark at the ceremony with a recorded message, highlighting the community that comes with the awards and relay of the contribution “It’s more important than ever that we celebrate black excellence and recognise the achievements of black communities.

“This year grime artists played a huge part in setting the agenda for British music and in the General Election, your contribution helped secure the highest youth turnout in a quarter of a century, showing the positive impact grime has on our society.”
