The inau­gur­al event in 2015 saw leg­endary artists like Court­ney Pine, Mica Paris and Omar tak­ing the stage. It is, quite unmis­tak­ably, an unmiss­able night for music lovers. Win­ners for the 2017 MOBO Awards for Best R&B/Soul, Best Jazz, Best Gospel and Best Reg­gae acts were announced on the evening.
