COVETED AWARDS AND NOMINATIONS
Move over Midas, there’s a new king in town and he’s about to bag all the gold. This week, musical golden boy, Imran Khan was nominated for four UK AMAs and accepted an extremely prestigious award from Anokhi Magazine.
Khan is nominated for Best Album for Unforgettable, Best Desi Act, Best Male Act and Best Video for ‘Amplifier’. The UK Asian Music Awards are the British Asian equivalent of the Brits or the Grammys. Fans determine the winners by voting for their favorite at www.theukama.com. This year the event will take place on March 11th.
How does he feel to have so many nominations? Khan says, “The nominations for the UK AMA's are great. I have worked tirelessly to deliver a hot album and bring forward a brand new urban desi sound for my generation of desi music listeners. Let's hope my fans feel the same and vote for me.”
Anokhi Magazine presented Imran Khan with the 2010 Musical Artist of the Year, Male award at their 4th annual Sexy and Successful awards gala. Khan also performed at the event’s gala and after party. Each year Anokhi creates a list for their magazine of Sexy and Successful individuals from which they choose winners from various fields.
These awards and nominations come after an incredible year for Imran Khan. His debut album,‘Unforgettable,’ was the highest selling bhangra album of 2009. The album sold more copies in the first week than any other release of the year. The music videos for his hit singles, ‘Amplifer’ and ‘Bewafa’ have been viewed just under 3.5 million times on YouTube. ‘Amplifier’ became the anthem of the summer with the highest number of requests at UK radio stations catering to the South Asian demographic.
