NEW VIDEO: MOBO UnSung winner Kobi Onyame

“Glasgow’s MOBO UnSung regional winner, Kobi Onyame continues to go from strength to strength as he drops the video for his latest track- ‘The Real (part 2)’.

Taken from his forthcoming  EP, Greener Pastures, the track is produced by the multitalented New Yorker- DJ Dummy, and also features a sample from the  Incredible Bongo Band’s version of the iconic song,  ‘Apache’.

The Oliver Whitehouse directed video, sees Onyame performing to camera against a gritty, inner-city backdrop . Good to see Onyame making moves.”

MOBO UnSung 2012: Artists Catch Up

When we launched our MOBO UnSung competition early last year, the mission was to uncover talented artists from across the UK and give them a platform to show the country what they’ve got. The search was a huge success we visited various regions from London to Glasgow and saw incredible performances from some of the UK’s major new artists.  MOBO UnSung returns this year and in the run up to the competition we thought we’d catch up with last year’s regional winners.


New Music: Kobi Onyame - Heartbeat (ft. Danay Mariney)

We're gearing up for our return to Glasgow for the 2013 MOBO Awards, and we've traced the path of the city's 2012 MOBO UnSung winner Kobi Onyame to discover a very special track which emerged in late 2012. 'Heartbeat' features the sugary vocals of Danay Mariney, and yet again it shows off Onyame's superb production skills. 

We've been to Glasgow twice before in 2009 and last year and we certainly noticed the hype for the urban scene there. With two more MOBO Awards to take place in the SECC in 2013 and 2015, we expect a Glaswegian winner in that very city soon. Will the MOBO UnSung winner be in contention?

The MOBO UnSung winner for Glasgow is....
