The Canadian-born, French-raised pop sensation Abbas Hasan keeps raising the bar for artists in the UK. After a mammoth year in 2013, the star is now being recognized in his native Canada by being nominated for the “Artist of the Year” award by Anokhi Media.
Anokhi, one of the most prominent and noted media groups in North America, is hosting its 11th Anniversary awards ceremony at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto, Canada, on the 1st February. Toronto fans can also look forward to seeing Abbas Hasan headlining the event with a performance of his number 1 hits.
In 2013 Abbas released his internationally acclaimed hit “Away” featuring his mentor Rishi Rich and a video starring actress Humaima Malick. Abbas was the only international artist to headline at the Times of India Film Awards in Vancouver alongside the cream of Bollywood’s film fraternity. He did an advert with Shahrukh Khan, performed for Priyanka Chopra and went on a European tour performing with Bollywood songstress Shreya Ghoshal.
After a sold out show earlier this month in the north of England, the news of Abbas’s nomination and upcoming performance in Canada indicates the star has started 2014 off with a bang! He has already announced he is busy working on a “secret project” that will be revealed in the very near future.
