Professor Green has been added to the star-studded line up at this year's MOBO awards

Professor Green has been confirmed to perform at the MOBO awards.

The 32-year-old rapper - whose real name is Stephen Manderson - will be taking to the stage on Friday (04.11.16) alongside Craig David, Tinie Tempah, Chase & Status and Best Female Act nominees Lady Leshurr and Laura Mvula.

The annual event - which celebrates Music of Black Origin - will be celebrating its 21st anniversary with a thrilling line up at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland.

WSTRN, Fekky, Section Boyz and Izzy Bizzu are also to perform.

MC Fekky said: "it's gonna be a mad ting! Make sure you lock in!"

Clean Bandit will also rock the awards' stage for the time as they team up with Best Newcomer nominee Anne-Marie for an energetic set.

Although most of them haven't graced the MOBO stage before, the 'When The Bassline Drops' hitmaker - who is nominated for Best Male and Best Song - is thrilled to be making a return to the awards ceremony after first wowing the show in 2000.

He said: "I first performed at the MOBO Awards 16 years ago and walked away with three awards that night. I'm back with new music and it's only right that I celebrate this by joining MOBO as they celebrate their 21st birthday."

Meanwhile, Laura Mvula - who last performed at the 2013 MOBOs - will be hoping her performance will be a celebration of a successful night as she's up for an impressive four awards.

She said: "I'm so thrilled to be back in Glasgow performing on the MOBO Awards stage. The MOBOs are one of the few music events that have really championed and supported urban music from Gospel to Grime, so it's an honour to be taking part once again."

Like Craig, Tinie is up for Best Male and Best Song for 'Girls Like', and will be hoping to add to the two awards he picked up in 2010.

Laura and Kano lead the nominations with four each, with Skepta narrowly behind with three nods.

The MOBO awards will be aired live tonight (04.11.16) on ITV2 at 8pm.
