Having been initially shortlisted in the ‘Bite My Music Global Awards 2012‘, one of the World’s biggest independent music awards, Swami Baracus has now been officially nominated in THREE categories… Best Hip-Hop Act, Best Hip-Hop Song and Best Cross-Genre for ‘Break This Game’!

The Bite My Music Global Award (BMM awards) was created to provide independent and unsigned musicians with a voice and to unite all musicians across the globe on one platform. With the participation of more than 1000 acts from across the world from more than 50 countries, the selection process for nominees was highly competitive, making SB’s recognition as one of only a handful of acts chosen from the UK all the more noteworthy!

Swami himself had this to say, ‘It’s a big achievement for me to be nominated! As an unsigned artist from West London, funding everything by himself, it proves that hard work and dedication can be eventually be recognised. The fact this is a global event just shows how universal music can be, and if it inspires others to do the same, then fantastic!’

All the winners will be selected on a combination of public and judges votes. Voting for the awards begins on March 10th till March 31st, with links available on www.bitemymusic.com from the 10th. So, please get voting and help support the ‘Baracuda’ on his global quest!
