With less than two weeks until this year’s MOBO Awards, Kanya King and the team have just announced the line-up of performers they’ve got booked for the ceremony.
Joining them at London’s OVO Wembley Arena on Nov. 30 will be Kojey Radical, Tion Wayne, Fireboy DML, Cat Burns and FLO to help the MOBOs mark 25 triumphant years of uplifting and celebrating Black British music and its growing influence both here and around the world. All of the performers have also been nominated for awards on the night.
News of the line-up arrives after the MOBOs announced the full list of nominees—which included two new categories, Best Alternative Act and Best Electronic/Dance Act—as well as the release of a special one-off compilation titled MOBO UnSung: Class Of 2022.
The new compilation pulled together music from 10 artists that are part of this year’s MOBO UnSung finalists, the tracklist includes contributions from Genesis Elijah, Mace The Great, AE, Crae Wolf, and many more.
Speaking briefly on his appearance at this year’s MOBOs, Kojey Radical said: “I’m excited to be performing at the MOBOs this year. To be a part of the 25-year celebration is very special!”
South London rising star Cat Burns added: “I can’t believe I’ve been nominated for Best Newcomer at the MOBO Awards! This recognition means a lot to me because all I’ve ever wanted to do was show how multifaceted Black female artists are and how we can sit comfortably in many different genres. So to even be recognised makes may heart warm. I’m looking forward to the awards ceremony and performing for you all.”
