Demarco Nominated For 'Best Reggae Act' In Europe's UMA Awards

KINGSTON JAMAICA || OCTOBER 25, 2013 || Since returning from his international sojourn and scoring two No.1 hits with ‘Apartment’ and ‘Continue Whine’ Dancehall superstar Demarco is fully focused on upping the ante on his career with the release of a surfeit of videos and new singles heading into the Christmas season.

Earlier this week the ‘Fren Circle’ and ‘Lazy Body’ singer was the recipient of even more good news following the announcement of this year’s nominees in the upcoming European Urban Music Awards. (UMA). Demarco has been nominated in the ‘Best Reggae Act’ category where he’ll vie against fellow heavyweights: Sean Paul, Mavado, Gyptian, Morgan Heritage, Spragga Benz and Bristish sensation Stylo G for the coveted award.

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 EUMA gives you that stamp of approval. It shows that you are doing something right. Lastly I would like to extend a big thank you to the fans globally whom without none of this would be possible.”

This nomination marks the first time Demarco is being recognized for an award by any European entity. The 11th annual staging of the prestigious award show will unfold on Friday, November 22, 2013 in London, England. The 2013 UMA’s will be aimed at raising awareness for the Diamond Children’s Trust. A charity that helps children in deprived countries by providing them with funding for education.

The Urban Music Awards is the No.1 premiere R&B, Hip Hop, Soul and Dance Music awards ceremony in the world. The ceremony is held annually in the USA, UK, France, Caribbean, and Japan with plans to expand to Asia, Dubai and Africa. The Award show was born out of the need to build a worldwide awards ceremony to recognise the achievement of urban based artists, producers, club nights, DJ’s, radio stations, record labels and artist from the current Dance/R&B, Hip Hop, Neo Soul, Jazz and dance music scene. Past winners at the Urban Music Awards have included; Beyonce, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Nas, Amy Winehouse, Leona Lewis, Adele, Goldie, Dizzee Rascal, Sean Paul, Beverley Knight, Lemar, Shakira and many more.
