The singer/songwriter, who grew up on the Long Knowle Estate in Wednesfield and who released her latest single All I Need last month, has been nominated in the GRM Daily Rated Awards 2018 in the Get Rated Award highlighting the work of up-and-coming artists.
An excited Sophielou said of her nomination: "I’ve been nominated for my first ever award. And it’s now at a public vote. I’ll be attending the award show in London on September 4 but need all the votes I can get as I’m up against all London artists."
Competing alongside Sophielou for the Get Rated Award are Eric IV, Big Zeus, Blessed, Kenzo, Yxng Bruce, Lil KayG5 and Lynch.
