Ms Dynamite shows off her glamorous new look at the MOBOs

article-0-18DRemember me-e-e? Ms Dynamite shows off her glamorous new look at the MOBO Awards as she prepares to make her musical comeback

She was famous for her scraped back ponytail, tracksuits and hoop earrings back in the day.

But Ms Dynamite has come a long way from her former appearance, as she proved while attending the MOBO Awards in Glasgow, Scotland, on Saturday night.

The 32-year-old singer swapped her velour two-pieces for a sleek black dress as she posed up on the red carpet at the ceremony, showing off her slim figure in the process.

Ms Dynamite, real name Niomi Arleen McLean-Daley, teamed her long black gown with strappy sandals and her hair in a chic updo.

The singer has been somewhat out of the spotlight for the past few years, but is now preparing to release her comeback single, Cloud 9, alongside Shy FX on 21st October.

But Ms Dynamite said in a recent interview that she isn’t going to rush a comeback out, because she wants to make sure it’s done right.

She explained to The Independent: ‘I’m just happy anyone is remotely interested in what I’m doing anymore. That’s the privilege, right there! That’s amazing to me, and humbling. 

‘But, you know, what is supposed to happen will happen, so I’m going to take my time about it. Because, in life, there’s no rush, not really. Is there?’

Ms Dynamite also added that another reason she wants to really focus on her comeback this time around is because the first time around she didn’t feel ‘worthy’ of her success.

She added: On the surface, sure, I had all this confidence, all this character. But when I went home at night, I just felt completely unworthy. I had no self-belief: as an artist, a singer; nothing.

‘It was all so strange. I couldn’t come to terms with it. Suddenly I had money, and I didn’t have to worry about feeding myself. But I couldn’t believe I was allowed to get away with it, that people were paying me to keep singing, when I couldn’t even really do that, not properly…’
