THROWBACK THURSDAY: THE FIRST MOBO AWARDS, 1996

Some audio from the very first MOBO Awards held at the New Connaught Rooms in London in November 1996, where I chatted with Blak Twang and Soul II Soul's Jazzie B. For the first couple of years this event had a bit of integrity and value, but very quickly (and predictably) turned into a soulless corporate glitz-fest which lost all of its original intent, leading to scenarios like Ed Sheeran receiving three 'black music award' nominations by 2012.
