Elsewhere at the event, boxer Frank Bruno was honoured with the MOBO Inspiration Award, in recognition of “his indelible impact on British sport, having battled racism and mental health stigma in and outside the ring during his storied rise to the top.”

Speaking about this year’s nominees back in November, Kanya King CBE, Founder and CEO of MOBO Group said: “The past 20 months have been extremely challenging for artists everywhere but as always we are seeing creatives rise up and adapt, even in a global pandemic.

“This year’s crop of MOBO nominees have not only shown resilience but incredible talent and range. We could not be prouder to celebrate their achievements across the 18 categories that span genres, as well as excellence in TV, film and media.”
