The Mobos done happened yesterday, and no, Bashy did not go.
The rapper, who penned the classic Fuck The Mobos back in 05, was nominated for best video for Kidulthood To Adulthood, but stayed hanging out in Africa with Damon Albarn or some shit. Leona Lewis won the award anyway.
Estelle took Best UK Female, unsurprisingly, along with best song for American Boy, while Dizzee Rascal copped Best UK Male for the second year running.
Chris Brown stayed shilling for Wrigleys, copping Best International Act and Best R&B / Soul Act. Supremes singer Mary Wilson picked up the Lifetime Achievement Award on behalf of Motown Records.
