MOBO AWARDS ROUND UP 2024

MOBO AWARDS ROUND UP 2024

Former Love Island star Indiyah Polack stole the show with her co-host with comedian Babatunde Aleshe for the 26th MOBO Awards ceremony inside the Utility Arena Sheffield last night.

Indiyah started the night looking absolutely stunning on the red carpet with a jaw dropping gown before wowing MOBO viewers with her presenting skills. She stepped out with boyfriend Dami Hope for a night of glitz and glam. The Influencer/ TV personality turned heads on the red carpet as she put on a very busty display in her diamond embellished sheer dress.

MOBO Founder Kanya King CBE said: 'We are proud to champion this year's incredible lineup of nominees for the 26th MOBO Awards, who have all brought stellar music and content to our attention through their remarkable work in music, film, TV, online and more."

There were show stopping performances from the likes of Pioneer award winner Ghetts, and after reuniting two years ago Sugababes also graced the stage with a nostalgic medley of some old school bangers. The Sugababes were presented with their special honour, the MOBO Impact Award.

They collected their award from fellow girlband FLO, Keisha, Siobhan and Muyta who said how grateful they were to be standing on stage twenty years on from first forming a band.
