Jamal Edwards, the founder of the iconic and multi-faceted British music platform SBTVwill receive the Music Industry Trusts Award (MITS) this year.

The 31-year-old author, broadcaster and DJ, who died suddenly in February, helped launch the careers of Stormzy, Skepta, Dave and Ed Sheeran, while many other young creatives across the UK shared stories about the help from Edwards to enable them to succeed in their respective fields.

MITS will present the award on November 7 at The Great Room, Grosvenor House Hotel, where Edwards’ family will accept it on their behalf. The award will also be accepted for the benefit of the BRIT Trust, the Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy Charity and the Jamal Edwards Self Belief Trust, the charity set up by Edwards’ family to honor his memory.

“It is very humbling for the family to accept this award on behalf of our beloved Jamal and we are delighted that MITS is highlighting the Jamal Edwards Self Belief Trust alongside the BRIT Trust and Nordoff Robbins,” said said Jamal’s mother, Brenda Edwards. “We know Jamal will be looking down on us on November 7th – bursting with pride that his absolute love of the music industry and giving back to the less fortunate in society has been so recognized.”

Ed Sheeran added: “Jamal has changed my life. He was also such a big part of defining the trajectory of my career, but I wouldn’t be where I am now without him. Jamal’s sharp knowledge, unwavering optimism and willingness to help others no matter the cost has meant he has changed the lives and careers of so many people, not just people in music, and no one deserves an MITS award recognizing their place in this industry anymore.

In other music news, North London rapper Avelino has just released two new singles.

Billboard Music Awards 2022 – Show – Credit: Brian Friedman for Billboard

Morgan Wallen took the stage at the Billboard Music Awards just over a year after being caught on camera using a racial slur to perform his songs “Wasted on You” and “Don’t Think Jesus” on Sunday night.

Performing on the center stage of the show surrounded by his backing band, Wallen opened with the thoughtful “Don’t Think Jesus” before ditching his guitar to give a moving performance of the chart-topping “Wasted on You.”

More from Rolling Stone

“Wasted on You” appears on Wallen’s 2021 album, Dangerous: the double album, which was one of the biggest commercial successes of the last year, despite the controversy surrounding the country artist. The track was officially released as a single in March and has since reached number one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart and peaked at number nine on the Hot 100.

MRC Live and Alternative, which produces the BBMAs, previously explained the decision to book Wallen in an internal memo shared via Billboard. According to the memo, the decision came after internal discussions, as well as discussions between MRC and Wallen’s team; MRC staff members were reportedly convinced that Wallen was committed to improving and learning more, and that the 2021 incident was not part of frequent behavior. (Billboard and rolling stone are both owned by the same company, PMRC, which came into being in 2020 after a merger between MRC and Penske Media Corporation.)

Wallen’s performance at the BBMAs is his second major awards show appearance, just months after the country music industry welcomed him to the Academy of Country Music Awards in March. Wallen – who won album of the year for Dangerous — was dropped from last year’s show, one of many industry-wide repercussions he faced after he was caught using the racial slur.

After the incident, Wallen remained largely out of public view, although he issued a public apology on hello america last July. Along with appearances at the BBMA and CMA, he’s slowly returned to the limelight over the past few months with new music — including a collaboration with Lil Durk — and a massive arena tour.

Afrobeat singer King Promise has detailed his relationship with rapper Sarkodie, describing her as father and son.

He shared the story of his first encounter with the Tema-based rapper on Showbiz A-Z with George Quaye on Joy 99.7 FM, Saturday May 14, 2022.

According to King Promise, he spotted Sarkodie a few feet away while hanging out with producer Kuvie. The couple mastered courage, approached him and introduced themselves, which led to Sarkodie entering a studio with them.

An impressed Sarkodie maintained communication with the two and eventually introduced King Promise to some people in the industry, including Killbeatz and Efya. The beautiful relationship that had begun to blossom led King Promise to think he would be signed to Sarkcess Music, but the story took a different turn.

“At one point I thought I was going to be signed to Sarkodie’s label, but he introduced me to someone else and it’s been fine ever since,” he revealed.

The discography between Sarkodie and King Promise is proof that the two share a strong bond. “He’s my dad in the industry,” King Promise revealed.

King Promise, who put on a stunning performance at the just-concluded VGMA, is currently out with a single titled “Ginger,” which is available to stream and download on all platforms.

Actress Lydia Forson wants to see the Ghanaian film industry benefit from the grace currently enjoyed by the music industry.

Speaking to Ibrahim Ben-Bako of Joy Prime at the VGMA on Saturday, she said she was optimistic that the film industry can achieve the same as it has been a good year for Ghanaian music on the world front.

“I was just remembering and thinking how far Ghanaian music had come, and I was literally like, ‘you know what, I want the same thing for Ghanaian film.’ It has been a great year so far for Ghanaian music,” said Lydia Forson.

“That’s how powerful we are when we come together and believe in ourselves,” she added.

The actress went on to mention the names of some Ghanaian musicians who trended globally during the year.

“We have the Black Sheriff trend; we have the Cammidoh trend; we have Kelvin Boy and so many other Ghanaian artists who have moved on the global front, not to mention the women Cina Soul, Adina and Sefa; they are all doing great,” she noted.

Lydia Forson has congratulated reggae/dancehall band Stonebwoy on signing their Def Jam record and called on Ghanaians to support them.

“We can only move forward, and I really feel like a lot has to do with the people of Ghana really believing in our artists and pushing us out there,” she said.

Harry Styles broke into the music industry at the age of 16. More than a decade later, the “As It Was” singer says he no longer wants to compete with the success he had as part of A direction.

In a larger space Better homes and gardens interview, the 28-year-old Grammy winner talked about watching Billie Eilish at the 2021 Grammys.

“She was so much younger than me, and when I was in the band, we were always the youngsters. When I did my first solo thing, I was always like the young guy,” Harry said.

“I’m not like an old man now, but she’s just from a different generation,” said the don’t worry darling added actor. Instead of feeling threatened by Billie’s rising star status, he no longer tries to be “the thing”.

Harry thinks it’s unhealthy and unsustainable to try to stay relevant and compete with younger artists, which he says has led to people falling apart and making bad career choices.

“You can’t win music. It’s not like Formula 1,” he noted. “I was like, in my life, there’s going to be 10 other people who will burst onto the scene like this, and I’ll just walk away from being the young thing.”

Harry now has a new “liberating” mindset, which is: “Be comfortable with finding something else that makes you happy. »

It is this mantra that led him to create his new album, Harry’s housewhich arrives on May 20.

“Finally, I don’t feel like my life is over if this album isn’t a commercial success,” he exclaims, while admitting it’s the first time he feels that. He no longer cares about making “really big songs” or “playing it safe”. He just wants to do “stuff that’s right, that’s fun.”
