  J'Nay: The hot young Mobo winner
Updated 31 July 2003, 18.04

A few days ago, no-one had heard of 22-year-old J'Nay. Now he's won the Mobo Unsung prize for unsigned artists.

After scooping the top gong, last won by Big Brovaz' Cherise, his first interview was naturally with Newsround Showbiz.

"I thought I might not win because of the way I look. I'm not packaged like anyone else."

J'Nay
"I'll get better."
He knows his style of music isn't like many other artists out there.

"I enjoy pieces of things - I might take a hip-hop beat, and a soul guitar.

"My first thing is breaking moulds."

Even though the world is listening to him now, he is still focused on his music.

'I'll get better'

"Winning means I can achieve a lot of my goals from the last eight years.

"I can create, and write good songs."

With a new car, a record deal, a management team and a big show in New York coming up, you'd think he'd feel on top of the world.

But the soft spoken west Londoner reckons there's room for improvement.

"I'll get better."
