The Brit Asia TV Music Awards will take place on Sunday 2nd May and is set to feature some of the biggest names in Bhangra and British Asian music, as well as featuring popular UK Urban influences.
Sheila Nakra, Director of Brit Asia TV, free on Sky Digital channel said; “A fantastic start to the spectacular awards ceremony.
As the only British Asian music and entertainment channel, it is important that we recognise the hard work from all of the Artists across the British Asia music scene fairly. We achieved this perfectly by the open public web vote where the winners were chosen by the public. Web votes were collected, verified and counted by an independent adjudicator, speaking to the artists�۪ here tonight it was this feature of our award ceremony that made the difference.”
Nominees with the highest number of phone and web votes will be counted and verified by an independent adjudicator and announced at the Symphony Hall event in Birmingham on Sunday 2nd May.
