CROYDON hip hop duo Krept and Konan have been nominated for four MOBO music awards.

The rappers, who won Best New Comer at last year's MOBOs, have been nominate for Best Male Act, Best Hip Hop Act, Best Album for 'Young Kingz' and Best Song for 'Don't Waste my Time'.

They face competition from Sam Smith in all four categories, as well as Tinie Tempah and Professor Green, at the awards on October 22.

The Advertiser previously reported how the duo's tune My Story is a heartfelt musical tribute from Konan (real name Karl Wilson) to his murdered stepfather Carlton Ned, who was gunned down while trying to protect him and his wife in Addiscombe in 2011.

Speaking after last year's nominations were released Krept (real name Casyo Johnson), from Upper Norwood, told the Advertiser how the duo would not have started rapping if it wasn't for their experiences in Croydon gangs.

He said: "We weren't in gangs for a long time but it has definitely helped make us what we are today.

"It didn't take long for either of us to know that being in a gang wasn't for us and you see when you get a bit older that it's stupid.

"You have this sort of tunnel vision. Before we started our music, I'm not even sure I knew about places like Birmingham and Liverpool because we couldn't see outside of where we already were."

Krept and Konan will find out if they have won at the 19th MOBO music awards, this year held at Wembley Arena on October 22. It is the first time the awards have been held in London for five years.
