Stormzy and Krept and Konan dominate the MOBO awards

Yeah, I was gassed about a MOBO award. Why? Because I ain't won a MOBO before.

Stormzy and Krept and Konan were the stars of the MOBO awards at Leeds' First Direct Arena, both picking up two accolades on the night. 

It's been a massive year for grime, and Stormzy has been one of the primal driving forces behind its resurrection. The South London MC picked up best male and best grime act, after picking up the latter at last year's celebration. 

Krept and Konan were equally as prolific after four nominations translated to two awards: best hip-hop act, and best album for their debut LP Long Way Down

Elsewhere, Ella Eyre won best female act, FKA Twigs, who performed in a revealing leotard on the night (watch that below) bagged best video for 'Pendulum' and Skepta reaped best song with 'Shut Down'. 

Other MOBO bearers included Cee Lo Green for most outstanding achievement, FUSE ODG for best African act, and both Lenny Henry and Wiley for paving the way for the younger generation of aspiring musicians.
