Maya Jama is set to front this year’s MOBO Awards and if her pre-ceremony look is anything to go by, then, boy, is she gonna be dressed to impress.
The presenter, 26, who recently found herself reaching millionaire status, was seen gearing up for the 2020 ceremony with her co-host and good pal Chunkz.
The pair attended a photo-call in London ahead of the awards taking place on Wednesday night and Maya made sure to slay, as she rocked up wearing a stunning sequinned dress and modelling her new lighter locks.
Ditching her glossy head of dark hair and deciding to switch up her look, Maya recently revealed she had gone blonde on Instagram and fans were loving her new style.
She gave her revamped look its red carpet debut as she got all dolled up ahead of the MOBOs and stunned while doing so.
The former Radio 1 host was seen goofing around with Chunkz as they posed together with this year’s fancy award and some scooters.
The duo’s great chemistry was clearly on show and fans were even seen previously shipping the pair after seeing them bond at Soccer Aid’s charity match, earlier this year.
Chunkz had been playing in the football match and was cool with missing a penalty, thanks to meeting Maya. He teased after the game: ‘Missed a pen, but I bagged Maya Jama so who really won?’
Maya, who previously dated rapper Stormzy for four years, had instantly friend-zoned the star, but Chunkz did manage to get her to go out on a ‘date’ and joked that the pair were going ‘two-weeks strong’.
As well as hosting the MOBOs, Maya is actually up for an award too, after being nominated for the best media personality award, voted by the public.
She faces strong competition from the likes of Mo Gillian, comedian Munya Chawawa, KSI and Clara Amfo.
Nines leads the nominations with five nods in the major music categories, while Michaela Coel is up for best performance in a TV show/film for her appearance in series I May Destroy You.
The awards will be live-streamed this year, given the pandemic, and will be the first MOBO Awards to take place since 2017. The awards were cancelled in 2018 by organisers and didn’t take place the following year in 2019.
The MOBO Awards will be live-streamed on YouTube at 7pm and broadcast at 10.45pm on BBC One on Wednesday December 9.
