The winners of the awards for Commitment to the Scene & Outstanding Achievement will be decided exclusively by the steering committee, a panel of the UK’s leading music experts.

 

The nomination phase has seen thousands of fans go online to nominate their favourite artists in the 13 chosen categories, including Best Male, Best Female, Best Album and Best Desi Act. The next stage of selection, which culminates in the gala Awards ceremony, is all about what the music buying public thinks, with fans being encouraged to vote online for their favourite star.

 

As a taste of what the gala night promises to bring, the glamorous Midlands bash also featured a showcase of some of the finest British Asian talent, with performances throughout the night from the likes of chart topping Bhangra singer, Foji, hot newcomer Gary Sandhu and reggae artist Roachkilla who performed their smash hit ‘Dil De De’, alongside desi heartthrob H Dhami, and pop sensation Mumzy Stranger.

 

After wowing the crowd, Mumzy Stranger, said of his nominations:It feels great to be nominated for another UK Asian Music Award! I spent the majority of 2010 touring the country and making new music for the fans. It’s great to have a platform like the Lebara Mobile UK AMA that recognises and celebrates all the hard work that everyone in the industry puts in. After a spectacular show last year, the only way for the Lebara Mobile UK AMA is up. Fingers crossed I pick up an award in 2011!’

 

The Lebara Mobile UK Asian Music Awards will be held on 10th March 2011, and hosted by BBC Radio 1 and BBC Asian Network presenter, Nihal and stunning singer and BBC One’s Waterloo Road actress, Karen David. Performing live on the night are Outlandish, Jernade Miah and an exclusive live band collaboration featuring H Dhami and Mumzy. More acts to be announced soon…!!

 

The public are now invited to vote for their favourites under each category by logging back onto the official website, www.theukama.com


The winners of each category will be announced at the glittering UK Asian Music Awards at the Roundhouse, Camden on Thursday 10th March 2011.
