Sam Smith wins big at the Mobo Awards



Chart-topping soul singer Sam Smith dedicated his triumph to his parents after celebrating being the big winner at the Mobo Awards.

The 22-year-old, who has had huge success since landing the Critics’ Choice prize at the Brit Awards earlier this year, collected four prizes at the annual bash, including best album for his debut record In The Lonely Hour, and the best male title ahead of figures including Tinie Tempah.

He also picked up the award for best r’n’b/soul act and song title for Stay With Me at the event staged at the SSE Wembley Arena in north London last night - only hours after being named best newcomer at the Q Awards earlier in the day.

“It’s been an incredible year,” he said on stage as he collected his last award for Best Album. “This is truly a dream come true. Mum and Dad, this is for you.”
