TINIE TEMPAH has cited music industry politics as his reason for pulling out of tonight's MOBO Awards.
With just hours to go before the show at the SSE Hydro to celebrate the event’s 21st birthday, Tinie posted a message on Instagram.
His handwritten note read: “I will not be performing at this year’s MOBOs for reasons that are outside mine and the MOBO’s control. The MOBOs is a ceremony I have grown up watching and take pride in. It’s given a platform for so many artists who have inspired me. So I always go above and beyond to attend.
I am gutted to not be performing. I didn’t go into this much detail because I want to have a moan.I wrote this because my music and my culture are very important to me and this has been the same issue year after year. It is frustrating when music industry politics dictate my ability to celebrate either. It’s been a great year for British music, especially the underground.
MOBO organisers posted up his message on Twitter with a note saying: “Message from @TinieTempah regarding his performance tonight. We appreciate the kind words and we will always support #MOBOAwards”
Professor Green announced he will be appearing at the ceremony just a few hours ago.
