KA & GRM Daily Rated Awards nominees revealed

The KA & GRM Daily Rated Awards

The nominees for the KA and GRM Daily Rated Awards 2017 have been announced, with J Hus leading the way with five nominations, followed by Dave, Stormzy and Not3s with four each. 

The brightest stars of UK urban music will come together under one roof at London’s Roundhouse on 24 October to recognize the best acts of the scene, as voted for by the public (bar the industry-voted Artist of the Year and Best Video Producer).

J Hus leads the pack with nominations for Artist of the Year, Best Album, Best Video, and two Best Track nods (including his feature on Dave track, Samantha).

Now in their third year, the awards are supported by partners including PRS for Music, Urban Development, KA Drinks and YouTube.

M will be there on the night to catch all the action and bring you interviews from the winners, fresh from the ceremony.
