MOBO Awards gear up for 18th anniversary

CAREER HELP: Stooshe paid tribute to the MOBO Awards

ORGANISERS OF the MOBO Awards are promising a memorable event to mark its 18th year anniversary.

Celebrations of the awards began this week in the 2103 host city of Glasgow.

MOBO founder Kanya King was delighted the awards were still going strong as they approach another milestone.

“MOBO turning 18 is a huge achievement and a special time for us”, she said.

King was proud about how the awards have “changed the industry, helped represent a diverse range of music that’s at the heartbeat of youth culture and given a platform to emerging talent”.

The founder added: “We will continue to build a positive legacy that can be enjoyed by various generations.”

Also looking back over the achievements of MOBO, Jazzie B, of Soul II Soul, said: “Thank you MOBO for Soul II Soul's first ever UK award way back in ’96!

“We had been in the UK industry for a while before we were awarded for Soul II Soul’s achievements and MOBO was the one that recognised this.

“It was an iconic moment”, added the group’s frontman.

Girl group Stooshe praised the awards and its effect on their career.

They said: “It’s such an honour to be celebrating 18 years of MOBO Awards success.

“Our appearance at the show last year was truly instrumental in building our profile and music careers and we are really looking forward to this year’s anniversary event”.

The 2013 MOBO Awards take place on October 19 at the SS Hydro in Glasgow.
