Sam Smith emerged victorious at this year’s Mobo awards, picking up four gongs including best male artist and best album.

Smith, the 22-year-old soul singer from London, nike air jordan 6 was also awarded best RnB artist and best song, for his hit Stay With Me at the ceremony held at London’s SSE Wembley Arena, the first time the Mobos have been held in London in five years.

It was an overwhelming day of success for the best selling singer, whose debut album In the Lonely Hour went to number one in the UK, after he was also named best new act at the Q awards earlier in the day.

Smith dedicated his numerous awards to his fans and also to those who had helped write his album “and acted as my personal therapist”.

He added: “This is truly a dream come true. It feels amazing. I hardly ever win awards and I never got awards in school for anything so it is really surreal for me to have five in one day. I don’t know where I’ll put them all. I need a cabinet. Well actually I need a house big enough for a cabinet.”

Asked about material he would be drawing on for his next album, he said: “I can always find a reason to be sad in life. I think honest songs make the best songs, and whether they are sad or happy, they have just got to be relatable.”

The Mobos were set up in 1996 to celebrate music of black origin and this year were co-hosted by former Spice Girl Mel B. The evening saw Jessie J named best female act, with the British singer opening the evening with a risqué performance of her hit Bang Bang

Accepting the award, Jessie J said: “I live for this. I love to sing and there are so many people to thank who have dedicated their lives to making this my dream but most of all the fans.”

Other performers included previous Mobo-winner Professor Green, who sang his recent hit Lullaby with American artist Tori Kelly, a performance by hip hop duo Krept and Konan as well as a rendition of 1986 hit You’ve Got The Love by gospel singer Candi Staton with rapper Little Simz.

Krept and Konan, who last year were named best newcomer, also picked up the award for best hip-hop act. Coming on stage surrounded by his family, Konan told the crowds: “First I’d like to thank all my supporters, all my brothers and my beautiful mum who is here. This one’s for you mum”.

Other winners of the evening included Ella Eyre, who was named best newcomer and south-east London MC Stormzy, who walked away with best grime artist.

Voting for the awards was done 50% by the public and 50% by Mobo’s Panel Of Specialists, except for best grime and best album, which was voted for by the public on Twitter.
