News Menu Button Hayley Westenra takes away two Tuis


Scribe cleans up at NZ Music Awards

Kiwi hip-hop star Scribe has picked up seven Tuis at the 2004 New Zealand Music Awards in Auckland.

Scribe won seven of the nine categories in which he was nominated in the wake of his 2003 debut album The Crusader and the hit Stand Up.

Scribe's album, The Crusader, won him the album of the year, best urban/hip-hop album and best male solo artist.

He also won best single and the people's choice award, and the songwriter of the year award, along with co-writers P-Money, Con Psy and Savage. The best music video award, with Chris Graham, rounded out a hot night for Scribe.

Brooke Fraser won best female solo artist and breakthrough artist from her six nominations. Hayley Westenra and Dimmer were also big winners, each taking away two Tuis.

Goldenhorse took the airplay record of the year award for their song Maybe Tomorrow, beating Bic Runga's Listening For The Weather and Carly Binding's We Kissed.

NZ Idol winner Ben Lummis won the highest selling NZ single award for his first single, They Can't Take That Away.

While Auckland traffic played havoc with the arrival of limos, fans jostled for the best spot along the red carpet at the Aotea Centre to catch a glimpse of some of New Zealand's hottest celebrities.

The awards opened with a collaboration between Scribe and West Auckland group Blindspott. Elemeno P, Adeaze and Brooke Fraser also performed.

The awards were hosted by Jaquie Brown and Mikey Havoc.
