The stars aligned virtually tonight for the MOBO Awards 2020.
For more than 20 years, the ceremony has served as the top beacon of honour for music of black origin in the UK.
Powering through unprecedented times, this year’s edition of the world-renown show saluted the names and releases that have made the last twelve months so action-packed.
The evening, which was hosted by Maya Jama and Chunkz, brought with it seismic performances from the likes of Tiwa Savage, Davido, Headie One, and Ms. Banks.
