Check Out Full Winners List On MOBO Awards 2020

by - 4 mins

The 2020 Music MOBO Awards took place on Wednesday, 9 Dec, and it was a special show with lots of deserving winners.

Music of Black Origin, also known as the MOBO is an annual music award presentation honouring achievements in “music of black origin”, including hip hop, grime, R&B, soul, reggae, jazz, gospel, and African music.

The 2020 MOBO Music Awards took place on Wednesday, 9 Dec, and it was a special show with lots of deserving winners. The award show returned after a three-year hiatus, with Maya Jama and YouTuber Chunkz hosting. The awards featured a couple of new categories this year, including “Best Album (2017–2019)” and “Best Media Personality”, which were publicly voted for.

Performances of the night included Headie One, Kojey Radical, and Tiwa Savage, alongside Ms Banks, Loski, and M Huncho. R&B artist H.E.R. and globally renown Afrobeats star Davido were also amongst the performers. This year’s virtual ceremony was live-streamed exclusively on YouTube.

The winners list didn’t just include musicians, either. Director Steve McQueen, whose Small Axe films on BBC detail Black life in the UK from the ’60s through the ’80s, won the inspiration award, and actor Micheal Ward won Best Performance in a TV Show/Film for his role as Marco in Blue Story. “This is an extraordinary prize,” McQueen said. “Thank you so much. The MOBO Awards for me is part of the idea of Small Axe. When people didn’t want to recognise us, we recognised ourselves and that’s given me the inspiration to go forward.”

Check out the 2020 MOBO Music Awards winners, ahead.
