The MOBO (Music Of Black Origin) Awards are held annually in the UK to recognise artists of any race or nationality performing music of black origin. This year, on the 15th of October, the show was hosted by Spice Girl Mel B and old skool Hip Hop icon, Rev Run of Run DMC. The award for Best UK Female went to British superstar Estelle.
The show has sparked criticism from fans. Some feel the event has left its British roots because American artists are also nominated.
