Best Pacific Male Artist Finalists Announced For 2005 Pacific Music Awards

2005 Pacific Music Awards finalists in the NZ Music Industry Commission (NZMIC) Best Pacific Male Artist category have been announced. And the nominees are... Dei Hamo, Scribe, and Tha Feelstyle. All are multiple finalists in the awards, the winners of which will be announced on Pasifika Festival 2005's opening night, held at Western Springs on the 11th of March. The inaugural awards show commences at 9pm following the conclusion of the Air New Zealand opening night concert

NZMIC CEO Cath Andersen says "The NZMIC is absolutely delighted to be involved in this event, particularly as sponsors of the Best Male Pacific Artist. Scribe, Tha Feelstyle and Dei Hamo are all exceptional talents - these three performers have collectively in excess of 130,000* records over the past two years. This fact alone surely shows the huge cultural significance of these artists."

The NZMIC encourages you to congratulate the nominees and eventual winner of what will be a hotly contested category, be a part of the 2005 Pacific Music Awards celebrations, and participate in what is undoubtedly one of the most diverse and culturally exciting events in Auckland's calendar.

* combined sales of singles and albums for all three artists.
