MOBO Music Awards 2021: King Promise Nominated Alongside Wizkid, Davido, Burnaboy, Others For Best African Music Art

The 2021 MOBO Music Awards will be held as a live event spectacle on December 5 at the Coventry Building Society Arena. Headie One, Ms Banks, and Kojey Radical performed at last year’s awards, which were hosted by Chunkz and Maya Jama and broadcast live on the internet. The performers for the 2021 ceremony have yet to be confirmed, but the candidates have been released, and presenter Henrie Kwushue presented them today.

Rapper Dave, who has the most nominations for album of the year, best male act, best hip-hop act, song of the year, video of the year, and album of the year, is leading the charge. Central Cee is the next performer on the list, with nominations for best male act, song of the year, best rookie, and best drill artist. Little Simz has also received nominations for best female artist, best hip-hop act, and video of the year.

The competition for Best African Music Art will be fierce with Ghana’s very own King Promise slugging it of with African Nigerian household music names such as Davido, Burnaboy, Wizkid, Ayra Starr, Tiwa Savage among others
