Emeli Sande Tipped For MOBO Awards Win By Rizzle Kicks After Olympics Performance
The 'Traveller's Chant' rappers say Emeli has been "smashing it" with her solo material.
Rizzle Kicks have tipped Emeli Sande to be the star of this year's MOBO Awards following her presence at the London 2012 Olympic Games opening and closing ceremonies over the past two weeks.
The 'Mama Do The Hump' duo say the Scottish singer, who has scored hits this year with songs like 'Next To Me' and 'My Kind Of Love', deserves her success after working as a songwriter for such a long time.
"The emergence of Emeli has been brilliant and her prominence at the Olympics opening and closing ceremony was amazing," Rizzle Kicks star Jordan Stephens told the Daily Star. "She's been behind the scenes for many years, writing songs for other people.
"It's great she's finally smashing it herself," he added. "She will win [at the MOBOs]."
Emeli took to the stage twice at the Olympic Games closing ceremony on Sunday (12th August) to perform a piano-led version of her Professor Green team-up 'Read All About It' in front of the thousands in attendance at the Olympic Stadium.
The 'Dreamers' duo went onto say they feel rap and urban music has fallen back into the mainstream in recent years thanks to the success of a new generation of rappers.
"Whether its Dizzee Rascal or Tinie Tempah, it feels like urban music is the mainstream now," Harly Alexander-Sule explained. "Rap has become a viable part of pop music."
