50 Cent Triumphs At The Mobos

Rap superstar 50 CENT has swept the board at this year's MUSIC OF BLACK ORIGIN (MOBO) awards - bagging three accolades.

The IN DA CLUB hitmaker was crowned Best Hip Hop Act, and won gongs for his album GET RICH OR DIE TRYIN' and hit single IN DA CLUB.

Other winners included JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE who was named Best R+B Act and CHRISTINA AGUILERA who took home the Best Video award for track DIRRTY.

Disco legends KOOL AND THE GANG won the Outstanding Achievement prize at the ceremony, which took place in London last night (25SEP03) hosted by music babes BLU CANTRELL and L'IL KIM - who won the Style Icon Award.
