STORMZY LEADS MOBO NOMINATIONS

Hus picks up four nods (Best Male, Best Album for debut Common Sense, Best Song for "Did You See" and Best Video for "Spirit"); Smith, whose debut album is due in 2018, gets three for Best Female, Best R&B/Soul Act and Best Newcomer. 

Universal signing Stefflon Don also has three nominations: Best Female, Best Hip Hop Act and Best Newcomer. Young Turks’  Sampha completes the group of threes with Best Male, Best R&B/Soul Act and Best Album for his Mercury Prize-winning debut, Process.
