I just thought I'd give this up to ATS as I always feel uneasy when the MOBOs
Or am I just being silly? I just feel that in this day and age, to have an award that is only open to music of 'black' origin is a step in the wrong
The Music of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards, established in 1995 by Kanya King MBE and Andy Ruffell, are held annually in the United Kingdom to
recognise artists of any race or nationality performing black music.
For the first time, the 2009 awards will be held in the City of Glasgow in Scotland. It has been held in London since its launch in 1995.
Okay, so the performers don't have to be black, but the music does.
Imagine a MOWO (Music of White Origin) awards? I know, it would be seriously rubbish but you get the point.
