Craig David won in three out of six categories he was nominated for at the fifth annual Music Of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards, which took place on October 4th at London's Alexandra Palace.
The young R&B sensation received the awards for Best UK Single ("Fill Me In"), Best Newcomer and Best R&B Act, which, as he said, made him "proud to be British". Craig also accented his patriotism by appearing on stage dressed in a red jumper with the "Buy British" slogan on it.
However Craig lost out to Jamelia's "Money" in the Best Video category as well as to DJ Luck and MC Neat who took the award for Best UK Garage act.
Other winners included Gabrielle who took home the Best UK album award for her "Rise", Eminem who, unsurprisingly, won Best Hip Hop, Beenie Man and Carlos Santana, who received Best Reggae and Best World Music awards respectively.
Although nominees for the awards this year were decided by a jury of music experts, the winners were chosen by the public, who could vote for their favourite artists via the official Mobo website.
The night, as usual, was full of celebrities, including the 'dynamic look' Lisa "Left Eye" Lopez from the US trio TLC, who re-appeared on the music scene after a long and misterious absence. She co-hosted the show with MTV's Trevor Nelson, and presented the highest number of ...outfits. Attending the show were also Louise, Honeyz and the new young star Samantha Mumba.
Here's the full list of winners along with nominations:
BEST R&B ACT:

BEST UK NEWCOMER:
