MTV have announced the launch their new initiative in association Emporio Armani Diamonds to highlight some of the acts which they feel will take the UK music industry by storm in 2015.
#MTVBrandNew brings together 10 nominees from various genres, and asks the public to vote for who they feel should be MTV Brand New Star.
After languishing in second place for while, Krept & Konan took to social media to urge the their fans to get voting. It appears that their efforts have payed off, and now the south London rap-duo have cruised into pole-position, and are currently leading the pack with 20,114 votes.
Krept And Konan topped the MTV UK Top 10 UK MC List earlier this year, and won a ‘Best Hip-Hop Act’ at this years MOBO Awards. Winning #MTVBranNewStar would be a great addition to their already long list of achievements. Get voting folks!
To vote, simply tweet #MTVBrandNew followed by the name of the act you wish to vote for. E.g. “#MTVBrandNew Joe Bloggs”. Public Facebook mentions using the same format count too!
