England-based Jamaican deejay, Stylo G has walked away with the Music Of Black Origin (MOBO) award for Best Reggae Act during Wednesday night’s staging of the 19th annual MOBO Awards at the SSE Arena in London.
The Spanish Town native pipped the likes of Alkaline, Popcaan, Chronixx and Tarrus Riley for the honour, bouncing back after losing out on the honour to Grammy-winning deejay, Sean Paul last year. It is the first MOBO award for Stylo G.
Stylo G is highly regarded on the U.K. circuit, having scored a Top 20 hit on the British chart with Soundbwoy and is also known for singles such as Call Mi a Leader and Badd featuring foundation deejay, Sister Nancy. The entertainer moved the United Kingdom in 1998 and made a name for himself on the underground scene prior to signing with British label, 3 Beat Records.
Next year’s MOBO Awards will be held in Glasgow, Scotland.
