Wednesday night, we saw Manchester’s very own rapper ‘Aitch’ pick up his first-ever MOBO award for ‘Best Newcomer’.
The Mancunian rapper was nominated along-side artists such as Darkoo, Dutchavelli, M Huncho and many more, but managed to bag the award after winning the public vote. We wouldn’t mind that for a 21st birthday present, would you?
Aitch took to his Instagram stories last night to thank fans for voting as he said: “woke up at 6 o’clock with dry mouth, came downstairs to get water and this was on YouTube, big up MOBO’s and thank you to everyone that voted! My fans are the best”.
Fans took to Twitter to congratulate the Mancunian rapper on his win:
Happy birthday Mr 0161@ 21!
And congrats on your well deserved MOBO. X

Aitch explained that: “It makes me feel like the fans are behind me ten times more, it’s been a bit of a mad year, a quiet year but lets you know the fans are still backing me”.
The MOBO’s made a much-needed comeback this year after having a two-year break, and what a show it was.
