Meet the BMAs Nominees – Best Hip Hop/ RnB Artist

On the 14th of May, 4 nominees from each category will be waiting to hear the verdict. Eight categories ranging from best artists, to best songs, best music videos and more.

Who will come out on top at the end of the night? Well, that’s entirely up to you.

We’re about to walk you through the nominees for the best Hip Hop/RnB act of the Bay Music Awards with Bank of Valletta

Making your decision won’t be easy, because they’re all oh so talented, but hopefully this article will make it a bit easier or you – so without further ado, meet Malta’s finest male artists.



At the age of 18 years, Lydon,  released his first single under his stage name Eddie Fresco.

In September of 2019, Fresco hit us with ‘INCOGNITO’, which  featured 12 tracks and several special guests including Sadgasm, Yung Belial and Freewill.

A rising star within the local Hip Hop and RnB scene, this one is definitely one you need to watch out for.


You’ll probably know Yannick from his debut EP Kam. 

The track, that’s very reminiscent of the sound Yannick has now built for himself, comes with a video that’s bursting with nostalgia.


Owen Leuellen is a young rapper who gained recognition across the Maltese islands after placing 2nd on the X Factor Malta.

Leuellen started writing songs at the age of 15 with no coaching whatsoever, improving skill with determination and hard work leading him to local fame. His collaboration with Ira Losco on her song ‘Hey Now’ is probably one of the most played Maltese track, ever.

Earlier this year he released his first single entitled ‘My Time’


In January 2019, Ben Miller released a killer track named Di-Vision. which saw over 3,500 views in less than 24 hours.

He’s known for songs like ‘Day Dreaming’ which made it on our Malta’s Top 10 list back in October 2019, and ‘Seen’ which garnered over 6k views.
