Mobo Nominees Announced

The nominees for this year's (03) MUSIC OF BLACK ORIGIN (MOBO) awards have been announced - with R+B superstar BEYONCE KNOWLES, British group BIG BROVAZ and solo newcomer TERRI WALKER leading the pack.

All have four nominations each, with CRAZY IN LOVE diva Knowles up for best album, best single and best video as well as best R+B act.

Fellow DESTINY'S CHILD bandmate KELLY ROWLAND is also recognised for her efforts - picking up nods for best R+B act as well as best single with NELLY for DILEMMA.

Big Brovaz - a six-piece girl and boy collective - have topped off a successful 2003 with nominations including best newcomer, against which they are competing against SOUL TRAIN LADY OF SOUL winners FLOETRY.

But last year's (02) big winners MS DYNAMITE, ALICIA KEYS and JA RULE have missed out on recognition in this year's shortlist, which are the main prizes in the UK for black orientated music.

Furthermore, indicating the mass popularity of R+B, UK garage and hip-hop, a number of white artists have picked up nominations, including JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, CHRISTINA AGUILERA and THE STREETS.

The majority of the awards are voted for by the public, and the star-studded ceremony will be held on 25 September (03) at London's ROYAL ALBERT HALL.
