MOBO Awards 2009 Nominations
That Grape Juice was on hand at the MOBO Awards 2009 Nominations Launch at 5* venue The May Fair here in London yesterday. As I’m sure many of you know, the annual show celebrates the undeniable presence of Music of Black Origin on the contemporary music scene. The event saw PA’s from JLS and Jade Ewen, though was largely populated by press outlets.
Having attended last year’s nominations launch, this year’s event definitely marked a major step forward; everything from the swanky venue, to the more ethnic feel (i.e. Patti’s, Saltfish etc on the menu lol), to the flowing free drink (I am actually still hungover LMAO) and most importantly the united-in-music aura, made this perhaps their best launch yet. A very enjoyable night indeed.
