THE Best Reggae Act category of the Music of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards was instituted at the first staging of the awards in 1996. The category has been replaced by the Best Caribbean Music Act for the 25th staging which takes place on November 30.
The nominees in the Best Caribbean Music Act category are Skillibeng, Spice, Popcaan, Shenseea, Sean Paul, and Koffee.
This is the third MOBO nomination for Koffee, who earlier this year released the album Gifted, which charted at number nine on the Official UK Albums chart.
For Popcaan, this is his eighth MOBO nomination. He won Best Reggae Act in 2015 and again in 2016.
Sean Paul’s most recent album Scorcha was released in May. He won MOBO Awards in 2002, 2004, 2006, 2009, 2012, and 2013.
Shenseea has received her third nomination. Last year, she won the MOBO for Best Reggae Act. In March, she released her debut album Alpha for Rich Immigrants/Interscope.
Whap Whap was a massive club hit in the United Kingdom for Skillibeng this year. He was nominated twice before, and this year he is up for two nominations. He is also nominated in the Best International Act category.
This is the third nomination for Spice, who in August released her sophomore album Emancipated via her Spice Official Entertainment label.
The MOBO Awards, an annual British music award presentation honouring achievements in music of black origin, will commemorate its 25th anniversary of the awards at the OVO Arena in London.
The musical genres often highlighted at the MOBO Awards include hip hop, grime, UK drill, R&B, soul, reggae, jazz, gospel and African music.
