Written by Rika C on December 1, 2022
For 2022, the Music of Black Origin, MOBO, announced that they discontinued the Best Reggae Act category and replaced it with Best Caribbean Music Act, thus covering the wider Caribbean community. Despite that, the nominees were made up entirely of Jamaican acts, namely, Sean Paul, Koffee, Popcaan, Shenseea, Spice, and Skillibeng, who emerged victorious, taking home his first MOBO.
Skillibeng attended the event and thanked the awards ceremony for giving him the award. He also shouted out his homeland in his acceptance speech.
“I present Jamaica,” the deejay said while encouraging his fans to dream big. “I’m from a small island where it’s very hard, and I really appreciate this award. To everybody that’s working hard, believe in yourself, believe in your dreams, keep doing what you’re doing. Big up to all my team, everybody who supported, who voted.”
