Tinie Tempah leads UMA nominations
Newcomer Tinie Tempah has received a record four nominations at this year's Urban Music Awards.
The London rapper has been nominated for Best Newcomer, Best Collaboration for his single 'Pass Out', Best HipHop Act and Best Music Video for his single 'Frisky.'
Tinie, who burst into the music scene earlier this year with his UK number one single 'Pass Out', said: "I am extremely excited to be nominated for this year. It's like a dream come true. The Urban Music Awards has always been the breaking ground for artists worldwide and I have always wanted to be at the UMA's. Thanks to all the fans who nominated me and I can't wait till the show in September."
Former 'X Factor' rivals, Alexandra Burke and JLS will battle it out in the Best Album category, while Rihanna and The Black Eyed Peas have both been nominated for Best International Act.
This year will be the eighth Urban Music Awards ceremony and all nominations are voted for by music fans.
Jordan Kensington, Founder of Urban Music Awards said: "In 1999, it was a hard task convincing sponsors, media, and labels and booking agents to showcase UK urban music. There was virtually no other awards show prepared to support UK urban artists. All awards shows had a more US biased agenda. We risked it all on the belief that if everybody fails to see the quality of our acts, we would work our hardest to make sure the scene got the recognition it deserves and now it's finally paid off."
The Urban Music Awards will be held on September 18th.
