Voting opens today for the 15th Annual, Urban Music Awards 2017 –
Awards to take place on 30th November, London
Nominations for this years Urban Music Awards were announced on Monday, which saw the likes of Dizzee Rascal, Stormzy and Wretch 32 leading the pack.
Taking place at Porchester Hall, London on 30th November, the UMAs will be one of this years most important music events.
The UMAs were the first music awards show to open up the nominations/voting process to music fans back in 2003. Dizzee Rascal who this year is nominated for a record 4 nominations (Best Album, Music Video, Male Act and Artist of the Year) spoke out about the UMAs recognising and supporting his talent from the beginning.
Wretch 32 who has also been nominated said “Most people don’t quite understand how much of an impact the UMAs had on the scene today. The truth is without the Urban Music Awards, urban music will not be where it is today. At a time where no other organisation supported UK homegrown talent. The UMAs stood strong in support of the talent who are now household names”.
This year and for the first time in its history, the UMAs will take on a more international feel with a celebration of Urban artists from Asia, South America, USA , Africa and France to promote a global community of artists collaborating with one another.
