Leona Lewis confirmed the annual event will take place at Liverpool’s Echo Arena in October.

The singer appeared more like a business woman than a ‘superstar’ when announcing about the Mobo awards, wearing a black blazer and thick black rimmed glasses.

She mentioned; “I used to watch the MOBOs growing up and I’m now the proud owner of two awards so I’m delighted to be here to help commemorate their 15th year.”

Leona performed at the Echo Arena a few days before the announcement and had gained an amazing reception, making her think that Liverpool is now “the perfect choice for this year’s MOBO Awards.”

Leona Lewis is currently on tour of the UK with Gabriella Cilmi.
