...And The Winners Are

Shush...don't breath a word of this to anyone. Scoops actually did not attend the AMA at Troxy last weekend. Why, you ask me? Well things we do for friends eh? Nuff said!

However you don't have to miss a thing. From what I hear it was a good event and whether all the lined up Artists performed is another thing. But below is something certain - that there were winners and they are;

Would you believe the organisers have set the wheel in motion for next year's event already? Well they've chosen the O2 Arena and if Scoops is still around by then I shall be bringing you the gist.

Aside - So I had a chat with Steel last month when he came to perform at the Yes Concert. He was not pleased at the nominees for the awards as he felt there were more credible Artist out there right now who deserved to win than the same old ones walking away with the awards. Do you agree? Look forward to the rest of the interview sometime in the near future.

Peace and out!


  1. this really looks good.nice to knw u re diversifying!

    thanks 4 ur comment!

  2. I went to this and it was 'alright' I wasn't really impressed but they did try for the first event and all the 'celebs; they promised did not turn up though that's not the reason why I went...I just thought the entertainment was a lil poor but kudos to them they sha tried.

    Some people well a lot of people did not turn up to collect there awards.
