Full List Of Nominees For Emerging Music Awards 2023

As the Emerging Music Awards enters its fifth year, it reflects on the incredible journey it has undertaken in the music industry. The theme for this year, “Music: The Propeller of Culture,” encapsulates its mission to recognize and celebrate music’s profound impact on society.

It extends its heartfelt gratitude to the gatekeepers of the music industry who have been instrumental in its success. Docta Cann, a father figure to all emerging talents, provided opportunities and guidance to all.

In this 2023 edition, it has introduced two significant categories: DJ and Music Portal Categories. These categories recognize and celebrate the tireless efforts of DJs and Bloggers, who passionately promote emerging music in the industry.

Moreover, the international category has been elevated to new heights. This year, it has proudly nominated emerging musicians making waves not only in the local scene but on a global scale.

The pinnacle of the celebration, the Emerging Music Awards 2023 Awards Night, is slated for December 2023. The main date will be communicated to the public through the website and social media channels.

Last but not least, the team extends its heartfelt gratitude to its media partners for their unwavering support.

To all the nominees, it offers its sincere congratulations. Their talent and hard work deserve to be celebrated.
