MOBO Awards 2021 | The Winners

Tonight, the MOBO Awards made its live show return and continued its work to showcase and celebrate Black music and culture. Artists and creatives who are re-defining the future of the British music landscape were honoured in a star-studded ceremony that was streamed on YouTube live from Coventry, the UK’s City of Culture.



The ceremony, at Coventry Building Society Arena, was hosted by multi-platinum-selling artist and actress Leigh-Anne Pinnock and comedian and broadcaster Munya Chawawa, with special guest host Eddie Kadi, who presents BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Official UK Afrobeats Chart Show.


The show featured blockbuster performances from a diverse range of talent including Ghetts, Pa Salieu, Stefflon Don and Ms Banks, Bree Runway, Potter Payper, Tems, NSG and ENNY, while Little Simz, Dave, M1llionz, Ghetts, Central Cee, Skepta and more all picked up awards.


Legendary world heavyweight champion boxer Frank Bruno MBE 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.


Check out the full list of winners below, and make sure that you don't miss MOBO Awards 2021: Access All Areas, a special show airing on 8 December at 10.35pm on BBC One which will include exclusive backstage content and never-before-seen performances and interviews from the award ceremony presented by 1Xtra’s DJ Target.
