Lemar has won UK Act of the Year and Best Album at Britain's annual tribute to Music of Black Origin, the Mobo Awards
He was "over the moon to win." A simple yet meaningful comment given by Lemar has more than enough to show how he's feeling to bring home two trophies at Britain's annual tribute to Music of Black Origin, the MOBO Awards. The Soul singer successfully brought home Best Album Award for "Time to Grow" and, too, beat Joss Stone and Estelle to snag UK Act of the Year Award.
Also receiving honor at the 10th anniversary of the MOBOs, which are voted for by the public, were Public Enemy for Outstanding Contribution to Black Music; and John Legend for Best R/B Act, beating Lemar and Mariah Carey. Elsewhere, the Best Reggae Act went to Damian Marley, who at that time also accepted a Posthumous Achievement Award for his father Bob Marley. Best Video, to add, was "Drop It Like It's Hot" by Snoop Dogg featuring Pharrell Williams.
