Babatúndé Aléshé and Indiyah Polack to host 26th Mobo awards in Sheffield

MOBO Awards is proud to welcome on stage Babatúndé Aléshé and Indiyah Polack as the hosts for its 26th ceremony. Coming to you live from Utilita Arena Sheffield on 7 February 2024, this will be a night to remember as the UK’s biggest and most prestigious celebration of Black music and culture rolls out its red carpet for the very first time in Sheffield.

One of the fastest-rising stars of British comedy, Babatúndé Aléshé has been wowing audiences across the UK with his current sold-out headline tour. After warming the hearts of the nation with his incredible stint in the jungle as part of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, the award-winning comedian, actor and podcaster is ready to take on another epic career first – hosting the MOBO Awards.

After landing on our screens in 2022 on Series 8 of Love Island, Indiyah Polack’s career has gone from strength to strength. Further to co-hosting the official Love Island podcast, The Morning After with Sam Thompson, and numerous television appearances including being a regular panellist on Love Island: Aftersun; the presenter is sure to dazzle on stage and screen in one of the UK’s music night of nights.

MOBO Founder & CEO Kanya King CBE said: “We are thrilled to announce Babatúndé Aléshé and Indiyah Polack as the charismatic hosts for the 26th MOBO Awards. They share such energy and chemistry, as I saw for myself when we met, and it will be a dynamic combination for the vibrant and spectacular awards show. I know they will pull out all the stops on the night!"
