Jesse J won four awards at the MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Awards in Glasgow, Scotland on October 5th. But there is some black critisism.
In the show's 16th year, the Best Newcomer also took home Awards for Best Album (Who You Are), Best Song ("Do It Like a Dude") and Best U.K. Act.
Other winners included Rihanna for Best International Act and Adele for Best R&B/Soul Act. Amy Winehouse was honored in a special tribute that featured her goddaughter, Dionne Bromfield, singing "Love Is a Losing Game."
But according to the black newspaper The Voice, the MOBOs are criticised over Jessie J sweep. The biggest outrage came from supporters of UK rapper, Wretch 32 who believed the Tracktor star, who was nominated for four categories at the Glasgow ceremony and didn't win one, should've at least scooped Best Newcomer.
Fellow rapper, Chipmunk, tweeted: "Conspiracy"
While Choice FM presenter, Kojo, wrote: "All Im saying is CRAIG DAVID all over again," in reference to the infamous 2001 BRIT awards, where the singer was denied all SIX gongs he was nominated for.
Back in July, Voice reporter, Janice Brown asked whether the Mobos were "doing a disservice to black artists" by using white singers to promote the awards.
She wrote: "I certainly don’t subscribe to the thinking that black people should always ‘help their own’, regardless of whether those seeking help deserve it or not. But if organisations like MOBO – and The Voice – that seek to promote black culture, choose to push white talents over black, can we really expect any more from the mainstream?"
MOBO founder, Kanya King said after the awards: "The awards reflect what is happening in the UK music scene right now."
