Okay, I don't think I listen to any of these acts willingly, at least not their latest stuff, except a few reggae nominees, and Ed Sheeran.

Saying that, why is Ed Sheeran listed? because he got brought through by a black guy (SBTV)?

And I thought people was saying this was Kartel's year?

So... what's you lot's take on it?

I dunno why the Mobos got rid of the 'Best Person called Tim Westwood' award. I think it is important to recognise DJs.

Representation of sh*t black music, Mobo has been a joke of an awards, ain't rated it or the Brits since So Solid Crew were on top.

Ed sheran shouldn't be on that list,

Best RnB.

Whats Adele doing on that list? I wouldn't class her stuff as Rnb

What as Omar put out this year?

Dionne Bromfield Ridding Amy winehouse coat tail..

Might as well call it M.O.M.O.. (music of Multicultural Origin)..This is where it seems to be heading.

I will like to see a separate award from African acts (Afrobeat). Its expanding globally ..

For views & High 5 reviews & sponsors. I guess its a wise move for for the likes of Adele to clear up on the night..

On a positive note . Last year was a good watch seeing many uk acts coming through
