MOBO Awards 2011 - Jah Cure Disqualified

The public voting for the MOBO Awards 2011 has started and everyone can vote online @

The nominees for the category BEST REGGAE ACT are:

  • Alborosie
  • Damian Marley & Nas
  • Khago
  • Mavado

the fifth artist WAS Jah Cure.

He has been removed from the list recently when the organisers found out that he had been convicted of rape in 1999, found guilty of gun possession and robbery and spent time behind bars before being released in 2007.

This is not the first time, that reggae artists have been banned from the MOBO Awards. Back in 2004 it was Vybz Kartel and Elephant Man who have been removed due to the homophobia topic.

Last year the MOBO Awards for best reggae went to Gyptian!


The MOBO Awards 2011 takes place in Glasgow on October 5th 2011.
