We are just hours away from the annoucement of the 2013 MOBO Award nominees.
2013 marks the 18th anniversary of the MOBO Awards. The nominations will be announced tonight at The London Connaught Rooms.
The MOBO Awards have been attended by the world's biggest urban music star's over the years and offered a first stage to many UK artists including Rita Ora, Emeli Sandé, Angel, Misha B, Shola Ama and more.
The MOBO Awards were launched in 1996 by Kanya King MBE, and were the first music awards event in Europe to focus on urban music. MOBO has been going strong for 18 years and played an important role in bringing black music and culture to the mainstream in the UK.
It will be exciting to see which artists will be at the forefront for this years nominations and which upcoming UK talent will be acknowledged as they begin their career journey.
MOBO will be live tweeting on the night using #MOBO18.
