The 2021 MOBO Awards ceremony will go out live on YouTube and the BBC from the Coventry Building Society Arena on December 5th.

Arlo Parks, Ghetts and Dave all look like strong contenders for the Album Of The Year prize at this year’s MOBO Awards, which will be held next month.

With Arlo Parks picking up the Mercury Prize this year, Ghetts landing a nomination, and Dave winning in 2019, competition is strong, while all three are up for their respective Male and Female Act prizes.

Dave is in the Best Hip Hop Act and Song Of The Year categories too, and Arlo Parks should be top of the list for Best Newcomer.
