Before I start can I just say, I'm not wrecking the MOBO's and not sending for any of the artists or the creator. I'm just stating my view.
So the MOBO's is an awards show for black artists on the UK music scene. Erm sorry, last time I checked two thirds of NDubz was White. I mean well done to them for winning multiple awards over the years but I just feel like I'm being lied to. It's like going to a black panther meeting and seeing someone in the front row with a white mask/hood up.
I think they should change their Lil motto thing or their mission statement because clearly it's not an award for black UK artists but rather an award for UK artists no matter their denomination.
Now, artists get on the stage of the MOBO's like they've reached the peak of their career and that the MOBO's is their last accomplishment on their list before they die.
The MOBO's are not that big. Hopefully one day they will be but artists should take their MOBO's home, throw it in a box and figure out a way to break into a wider industry.
Artists are too comfortable and think they're so good and have bars for days in which the label can't drop them for. Well sorry, without naming guys, you can get dropped quicker than pennies. No artist should sit back and relax, break into markets and get to a level in which can be classed as music industry domination. Why settle for a MOBO when Grammy's are better? Heck, a bloody MTV moon man shatters any glass moulded into a MOBO award.
Don't be so lazy and make my ear bleed with GOOD music. None of that crap you were spitting in your previous albums but on another track. Some of us aren't stupid and won't buy your recycled lyrics.
That's all I have to say.
MOBO's stop shitting on the representation you're giving out even if it's just to me and artists grow a set of balls and brave into other industries. If you did it once, you can do it again especially since you have financial backing.
