It is the UK's biggest and most prestigious celebration of black music and they are taking it to the next level to celebrate their 25th anniversary.
It's set to be a studded event, and with performers like FLO and Kojey Radical, you're not going to want to miss out.
The 2022 MOBO awards will take place on Wednesday 30 November.
It is 25th anniversary of the prestigious awards and is set to be a star-studded affair with a plethora of guests and performers.
The MOBO awards are taking place at the OVO Wembley Arena in London.
In association with Lucozade, the MOBO awards will be a night to remember.
The MOBO awards will be full of iconic performances from groups and rappers alike.
Kojey Radical, Tion Wayne, Fireboy DML, Cat Burnsand FLO are confirmed to take the stage at MOBO’s epic 25th anniversary ceremony, live from London’s OVO Wembley Arena on 30 November.
On performing at the awards, Cat Burns said: “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.”
FLO are making their televised awards ceremony debut at the MOBO awards, and are set to bring their sweet harmonies to the stage.
Having turned heads with their recent live performances on Jools Holland and Jimmy Kimmel, the trio – made up of Renée, Jorja and Stella – are set to stun at Wembley after an impressive debut year which has already seen them tipped by Missy Elliott, SZA and Sugababes.
