Leeds City Council estimates that when the MOBO Awards was hosted in the city in 2015, it brought in £1.35m to the local economy through ticket sales and hotel bookings.
The MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Organisation was founded in 1996 to "champion and elevate urban music genres" in the mainstream music industry.
