Last night the twitter world ran amok with hashtag #MOBOShunsAfrica trending at a rapid pace. This was as a result of the best African act of this year’s MOBO(shortened form of Music Of Black Origin) 2014 awards, being presented away from the media, in a glamorous backstage ceremony to Fuse ODG which some considered a travesty. Afrobeats lovers and sympathisers took to twitter last night to register their disapproval, and express their dissapointment! This now beggars the question, “Has Afrobeats not yet attained the recognition status in the UK considering it is the biggest location outside of Africa where the genre is well known?” Why was the award presented backstage away from the media hence not receiving it’s due(or should we say expected) recognition? We are yet to get an official feedback from MOBO Awards regarding this, but we will endeavour to keep you in the picture. Check out a screenshot of tweets with the #MOBOShunsAfrica tweets.
