The MOBO Awards have announced their 2021 show, which will be a live event for the first time since 2017.
The awards, which have celebrated black music since 1996, will take place in Coventry on December 5th and fans will be able to attend in person.
Like many other events, MOBOs took place online last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Last year’s socially distant show saw Mahalia and Nines win two awards each.
Organizer Kanya King says the awards will be “the most significant event in British black culture this year”.
“In 2020, we proudly did the unthinkable by producing an awards show in the midst of a global pandemic, which was no easy feat.”
The 2020 awards saw Mahalia take home Best R & B / Soul and Best Female and Nine by winning Best Album and Best Hip Hop act.
Aitch won Best Newcomer with Young T and Bugsey Best Song for Don’t Rush.
Previous winners also include Stormzy, who won three awards in 2017, and Kano, who won Best Album in 2016.
Other names honored in recent events include Krept & Konan, Nicola Adams, Skepta, Lenny Henry, Ms. Dynamite, and Sam Smith.
