Stormzy, Stefflon Don and More Win Big at 2017 MOBO Awards
On Wednesday (Nov. 29), the 2017 MOBO Awards went down in England's Leeds Arena, and when they did, Stormzy, Stefflon Don, J Hus, Giggs and WizKid all walked away as big winners.
While everyone of those artists took home W's, Stormzy and Stefflon Don definitely won the night. For the awards show, designed to celebrate music of Black origin (hence the acronymo, MOBO), the two artists won Best Male Act and Best Female Act, respectively.
For his part, Stormzy earned acclaim for his Gang Signs & Prayer album. He also won trophies for Best Album and Best Grime Act. Stefflon Don, on the other hand, earned attention for her Real Ting mixtape. Safe to say both bodied 2017.
