13th Annual MOBO Awards 2008

moboMobo Awards 2008 was held yesterday, October 15th, 2008 at the Wembley Arena in London. The awards established to honor the works of musicians of “Black Origin” attracted international music celebs from Europe, USA and Africa. African personalities nominated for an award included: South Africa’s Hip-Hop Pantsula, Jozi, Faze, P-Square, 9ice, Asa, Jua Cali, Wahu, D’Banj and Magic system, all competing for Best African Act.

The winner from that category was 9ice “straight from Naija, out of Naija!” We know our very Ladybrille woman Toni Payne-Akande, his wife, who we just saw for her baby shower and who flew out Monday to be with him must be beaming with pride! CONGRATS!
