Stormzy has sealed off an incredible year, securing five tips for this year’s MOBO Awards following the announcement of the 2017 nominations earlier today.

Revealed at London’s YouTube Space (marking a departure from MOBO’s usual home of the capital’s Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club), Stormzy’s lead also saw welcome nods go the way of J Hus who secured four nominations, including Best Album for Common Sense and Best Song for Did You See.

Other notable acts also tipped at this year’s MOBOs include Jorja Smith (who secured three nominations in the Best Female, Best R&B/Soul Act and Best Newcomer categories) and Loyle Carner, whose The Isle Of Arran landed in the Best Video grouping.

This year will see the MOBO Awards return to Leeds, hitting the city’s First Direct Arena on 29th November; performances are set to be announced in the lead-up.
