British pop star Jessie J was the toast of the U.K.’s Music of Black Origin Awards (MOBOs) on Wednesday after winning four top honours.
The Price Tag hitmaker was named Best U.K. Act and Best Newcomer, while her track Do It Like A Dude was hailed as Best Song and Who You Are claimed Best Album.

Soul sensation Adele also went into the 2011 ceremony in Glasgow, Scotland as a multiple nominee – but she walked away with just one prize, for Best R&B/Soul Act.
