Her wins come in the wake of being crowned Number One in the UK Singles Chart last week, featuring on Labrinth’s track ‘Beneath Your Beautiful’. Labrinth also walked away with the MOBO for Best Song with ‘Earthquake’ featuring Tinie Tempah.

Other winners of the night included Plan B who won Best Male and Best Hip Hop/Grime artist, while Best Newcomer went to Rita Ora and Dionne Warwick won the MOBO Lifetime Achievement gong.
