Custom House gospel rapper gets a MOBO.
A GOSPEL artist from Custom House emerged victorious at the prestigious MOBO music awards.
Guvna B, aka Isaac Borquaye, was named as Best Gospel Act at the star studded event in Liverpool last week.
The 21-year-old singer said: “It’s such an amazing feeling.
“Four years ago I was at a crossroads whether to do right or wrong and the gospel changed me.
“Just really thankful to all the fans and supporters who believed in me and now I’ve got my MOBO, it feels great.”
Jackson 5 legend Jermaine Jackson was on hand to present Guvna B with his award.
