Yesterday (30/03), *SCAPE Invasion Singapore held the second edition of the Youth Music Awards to celebrate the contributions made by our talented pool of artists. While the event had to be livestreamed due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, host Joakim Gomez kept things light-hearted while rappers Abangsapau and Boro Bhaiya injected excitement with their live performances.
On planning Youth Music Awards 2020 in the face of challenges posed by the pandemic, Hyder Albar, the founder of Invasion Singapore, had this to say: “It has been an uphill battle in planning Youth Music Awards 2020, there have been countless changes to the programme because of COVID-19 but I am proud to say that the team at *SCAPE and INVASION SINGAPORE have taken every challenge in stride and adapted to each situation for a positive outcome." He further shared that this year saw 2,038 song nominations, a significant leap from the 758 nominations received last year.
"In these uncertain times I am glad that we can still go ahead with our intent of recognising the next generation of music talents in Singapore. Congratulations to the winners of YMA 2020, we are glad to share this milestone in your journey of development as an artist," he added.
Goh Kok Wee, executive director of *SCAPE Co. Ltd, echoes this sentiment: "*SCAPE continues our efforts to grow Youth Music Awards, an important music platform where our creative youth talents could showcase, be recognised; and importantly to connect with other youths and the industry (...) Together with our partner, INVASION SG, *SCAPE looks forward to supporting our youths’ journey in the pursuit of their dreams and aspirations.”
