The main ceremony kicked off at 8pm at the Coventry Building Society Arena and was hosted by Little Mix singer Leigh-Anne Pinnock and comedian Munya Chawawa.
The Mobo Awards are an annual British music award presentation honouring achievements in “music of black origin”, including hip hop, grime, R&B, soul, reggae, jazz and gospel.
Dave was the most-nominated artist this year, with five nods, while Arlo Parks, Headie One, Tems, and Burna Boy were also up for major awards.
The ceremony returned as a live show for the first time since 2017, as there were no awards in 2018 and 2019, followed by a virtual ceremony in 2020.
Music artists like Pa Salieu, Stefflon Don and Ms Banks, NSG, Tems and Enny also performed live on stage.
