Coming out on top of a list of nominees that was four times VP Recording artist thick - plus Beenie Man, David 'Mavado' Brooks beat Tarrus Riley, Etana and Busy Signal and 'The Doctor'.

Initiated in 1995, the awards serve to recognise music of Black origin, performed by artists of any race. Mavado's win puts him in the saddle with Sean Paul, Shaggy, Wayne Wonder, Sean Kingston and multiple winner - Beenie Man who have all walked away with reggae related MOBOs in previous years.

Mavado was not present to receive his award and his absence was reportedly due to previous scheduling, but his blossoming career will surely get a boost as a result of the accolade.

Despite obstacles that have recently included being placed then removed from US stop lists, Mavado has continued to rise in a dominant fashion that sees him working in collaboration with one of Hip Hop's greatest performers - Jay Z..

Mavado's hands are now 'in many pies', with the launching of a new clothing line 'Gullywear' coming up soon and another new hot shot recorded by himself and Jay Z. that will be featured on what is said to be Jay Z's final Def Jam album, "Blueprint 3". Later this year Mavado's sophomore album, "Mr. Brooks" will hit the streets while two parties slated for next Saturday and Saturday, November 29 will be in honor of the dancehall star's official return to New York and his birthday - respectively.

Plans are also being launched to have Mavado featured in a big budget movie, according to reports.

    Not sure if anyone has touched on why Mavodo was booed at the MOBO's, everyone who won an award that was not present was booed...It was not a reflection on Mavodo, just something the crowd was doing to all artists that where not present..We shall overcome!!!!
