Popcaan Performs Live At MOBO Awards

Unruly Gang Inna Glasgow

The last time Popcaan set foot in the United Kingdom, he used an OVO duplate to seal up Mixpak’s decisive victory in the Red Bull Culture Clash. Now comes news that the Unruly Boss will be performing live at the 21st Annual MOBO Awards in Glasgow, Scotland. The awards, which honor Music of Black Origin around the world, will kick off in just a few hours. This year’s Best Reggae Act nominees include Popcaan, Alkaline, Spice, Kranium, and Protoje. (Nuff respect!) Those of us who are not in the UK can pree the red carpet pon Facebook, and keep it locked to Boomshots for more updates. More Details After The Jump… Read more »

MOBO Awards Announce 2016 Best Reggae Artist Nominees

MOBO Awards Announce 2016 Best Reggae Artist Nominees

Will Popcaan Continue His Winning Streak?

This morning in London the nominees for this year’s MoBo (Music of Black Origin) Awards were announced. Now celebrating its 21st year, the MoBos have often done a better job reflecting the sound of the streets than the Grammy’s, particularly in the Reggae award category, honoring not only the Best Reggae Album (like the Grammy’s) but the overall Best Reggae Artist. Last year’s nominees included UK-based Stylo G, Chronixx, Protoje, Omi [who might have been amused to be included in this category since the Jamaican-born pop artist always made clear that he’s not a reggae artist], with the award going to Mr. “World Cup” himself, Popcaan—who got the nod this year as well. His last trip to England resulted in a MixPak victory at the Red Bull Culture Clash. Check out his competition. Nominee List After The Jump… Read more »

Sean Paul Wins MOBO Reggae Award

Sean Paul Wins MOBO Reggae Award

Other Winners Include Tinie Tempeh, Wiley, Rudimental, Fuse ODG, Naughty Boy, and Laura Mvula 

This Weekend the UK celebrated the 18th staging of the MOBO—Music Of Black Origin—Awards. This year Scotland’s capital Glasgow played host and was rammed with celebrities galore—from Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora to So Solid Crew and Ms Dynamite. Craig David even flew in from Miami to present an award. It’s been an exciting year for reggae and the nominees for the Best Reggae Act category were right on point for 2013 making this category a real nail-biter. The competition was tough between Mavado, Stylo G, Sean Paul, Popcaan and Tarrus Riley—and as they say “may the best man win.” So congrats to Sean Paul for taking that home. This makes it a cool 3 times for Sean Paul. Unfortunately Dutty Paul didn’t make it to Glasgow to receive his award in person but he did send through a video of his acceptance speech—RRRRRRRRRR! (always wonder how the organisers keep that under wraps!) Other highlights from the event included Tinie Tempah taking home ‘Best UK Hip Hop/Grime,’ Rudimental taking home “Best Album,” Fuse ODG taking home “Best African Act” Naughty Boy Taking Home “Best Video” Wiley taking home “Best Male Act” and Laura Mvula taking home “Best R&B/Soul Act” & “Best Female.” Check here for full list. All in a days work—back with the MOBOs next year!
