Founder Kanya King said it promised to be “another exciting celebration”.
The MOBO Awards for “Music of Black Origin” was established in 1996 by Kanya Kinga and Andy Ruffell. The MOBO Award show is held annually in the United Kingdom to recognise artistes of any ethnicity or nationality performing black music.
MOBO is expected to announce the line-up of artistes for the ceremony over the coming weeks.
In November 2016 the “Unruly Boss” for the second year in a row received the MOBO awards for the best Reggae act of the year.
