    The fact that even though Ghanaian award institutions like 4Syte Music Video Awards and Ghana Music Awards on countless occasions has failed to nominate Atumpan for his great music that continues to thrill fans abroad, the Hardboy Music star doesn’t seem to give up.

    The Afrobeat Super Star has been nominated for the Best African/AfroBeat Act along with his countrymen Fuse ODG and Sarkodie. Others in the same category include Moe Logo, Mista Silva, Wizkid and Ice Kid.

    The prestigious European Urban Music Awards & the UMA Academy announced the nominees for this year’s highly anticipated 12th annual awards ceremony taking place on the 15th of November 2014 in London.

    In an interview, ‘The Thing’ and ‘Regina’ hitmaker disclosed his happiness and said ‘Am so happy to be nominated for such awards. It really shows people love what you do and this encourages me to do more’. Atumpan has currently released a single entitled ‘Gimme some more’ which features Ghana’s fastest rapper and BET Award winner Sarkodie.

    Aside from the Best African/Afrobeats Act which included three Ghanaians, Fuse Odg gained two other nominations which include the Best Male Act and Best Collaboration with his recent hit single which features Sean Paul.
