THE ONLY NIGERIAN WHO WON MOBO AWARD 2010.
Words: Adedosu ‘kenzy’ Adekunle
Last year, did’nt see Nigerians carting the luxury Mobo Award, as its last recipients in recent years had seen the likes of 2face, Dbanj and 9ice.
Well, we sincerely hope that new cats like; Whizkid, Mo cheddah, skales, vector da viper, Terry g, Wande coal and D’prince, will sincerely clinch one or two award at the Mobo Award this year 2011.
Tinme Tempah, real name Patrick okogou, was the only Nigerian to win the award at the just concluded 2010 edition of the Mobo Awards, which took place at Liverpool, United Kingdom.
The awards ceremony which was in celebration of its 15th anniversary saw the London grime Mc and rapper taking home the award for best video for his song “FRISKY” where he featured Labyrinth.
He also took home another award as the best new comer, making him a worthy successor to the current king of UK urban Dizzee rascal.
The 21 year old however missed out on best song and best UK.
