Demarco Nominated for ‘Best Reggae Act’ in Europe’s UMA Awards


PRISM MARKETING CONSULTANTS | OCTOBER 24, 2014 || Following a triad of performances at the Digicel 5K Run/Walk for Special Needs in Downtown Kingston; the grand opening of Klub Khaos in Mandeville and Chug It over the Heroes Weekend, Demarco continues to experience an upsurge in popularity heading into the Christmas season. Earlier this week the blonde-hair singer was the recipient of more good news following the announcement of this year’s nominees in Europe’s Urban Music Awards. (UMA). Demarco is nominated in the ‘Best Reggae Act’ category where he’ll vie for the coveted title against fellow Dancehallers: Sean Paul, Mavado, Gyptian, Morgan Heritage, Popcaan and British sensation Stylo G.


A seemingly jocund Demarco in a release to the media says, “It’s very gratifying to be recognized for your work and even more humbling when an international organization such as the UMA gives you that nod of approval. It shows that you are doing something right. In closing I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to my team and the fans globally whom without none of this would be possible.”

The nomination marks the second time Demarco is being recognized by a European entity for his work. The 12th annual staging of the prestigious award show will unfold on Saturday, November 15, 2014 in London,
England.

The Urban Music Awards is the No.1 premiere R&B, Hip Hop, Soul and Dance Music awards ceremony in the world.
