Full List of IndieGo Winners

The big winners of the South Asia’s 1st Music Awards went to Qayaas, Brodha V, Ashanthi  and Shadow. The IndieGo music had its thrills and spills as the social media driven awards announcement kept musicians on their seats waiting for each category to be announced on the group postings on Facebook and the Bite My Music website.(www.bitemymusic.com)
Qayaas led the way with a clean sweep of all the rock awards, bagging Best Rock Vocalist, Best Rock Song and Best Rock Group but they were still upstaged when hip-hopper Brodha V snatched the Song Of The Year with the spritually gutsy Aathma Raama. Ashanthi the Queen of Sri Lanka’s hip-hop & r&b scene caused an upset when she walked away with the overall best female act beating out favorite Shreya Ghoshal and electro-pop acts Shadow finally came into their element by winning the Best Electro act. 
Qayaas also walked away as “THE CHOSEN ONE” a special category that was sponsored by world famous entertainment publicity company, Danie Cortese International. As part of DCE’s sponsorship, Qayaas will be provided a global social media PR package to help boost and drive their image and brand to a wider base of audience.

Cmon Chick was also a break out track for me when it was released. Like it was the best track of me till date. And after my nominations I was motivated enough to make more and more songs. And last thing, yesterday was my birthday too..so this award was a special one for me. 
And what is next in my career..umm after cmon chick I have already released nearly 2 dozen songs over the web ranging from Hip Hop genre to dubstep to ambient to trance. And these days..I am working on a Trance Ep. Being an Indie Artists I always love to collaborate with other artists if the feel so. So I am also doing work with various Underground Emcees. Practicing hard is the thing these days for me. I am trying to fuse multiple genre to make something unique. and I hope I’ll be successful in it.Thanks a lot Bite My Music.
