2017 MOBO Awards performers announced


THE MOBO Awards have announced their 2017 performers, with US sensation Cardi B amongst the first names announced.

The Bronx rap star became the first female rapper in 19 years to top the Billboard Hot 100 with a solo hit. Her breakout smash Bodak Yellow is the unmistakable rap anthem of the summer and this will be Cardi B’s first ever UK awards show performance. She is nominated for Best International Act alongside DJ Khaled, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Solange and Sza.


Fresh from sending both their mixtape 7 Days and 7 Nights straight into the UK Top 10, Krept & Konan are now set for a major return to the MOBO Awards stage in Leeds on November 29. It was here at the First Direct Arena two years ago that the South London rap duo were crowned Best Hip Hop Act, the first of many career-defining milestones.

HOME GROWN: Krept and Konan

Krept & Konan, who took home Best Newcomer at the 2013 MOBO Awards, recently peaked at #6 (for 7 Days) and #8 (for 7 Nights) on the UK Albums Chart, marking their simultaneous second and third Top 10 entry since 2015’s monster UK #2 hit debut The Long Way Home.

One of the UK’s most exciting new emcees, Stefflon Don, will also be unleashing her sickening flow on the MOBO stage in less than three weeks.

RISING STAR: Stefflon Don

The Hurtin’ Me star, who just signed a million pound deal with Universal, is one of the most nominated acts in this year’s awards, up for the big gongs: Best Female, Best Hip Hop and Best Newcomer.

The Mobo Awards take place on November 29 at the First Direct Arena in Leeds.
