The stars aligned virtually tonight for the MOBO Awards 2021.
For more than two decades, the ceremony has served as the top beacon of honour for music of black origin in the UK.
Returning to a live format at the Coventry Building Society Arena, 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 Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock and comedian Munya Chawawa, brought with it seismic performances from the likes of Bree Runway, Tems, NSG, and Stefflon Don.
With the credits rolling, head below to find out who won big…
