HFP MusicCity got his exclusive reaction below
“I get to the end of every year thinking... ‘how can next year be better than this?’ God leaves me speechless every time. The way 2020 has ended is better than any best case scenario I could've dreamt of. When I saw the nomination, I was elated to be recognised for my art amongst so many incredible artists and musicians, to win it is just mind-blowing. Thanks to the Mobo’s for recognising Faith based creatives like myself on a grand stage”
Congratulations CalledOut Music, it has truly been an amazing 2020 for you. The MOBO’s continue tonight at 7pm on YouTube and BBC One at 10:45pm.
