One of the most successful artists around the world, Adnan Sami will be awarded the prestigious The International Brandlaureate Brand Personality Award on 1st Mar 2013 in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia. He will be given this honour by the Asia Pacific Brands Foundation in recognition of his achievements and contribution in the field of music. Adnan was humbled by the honour given to him by President of The BrandLaureate Dr KK Johan.
“I feel blessed! This is a great honour and I am motivated to do more. It is the love of people and passion for music that has got me here. 25 years of music and gearing up for more,” said Adnan.
The International BrandLaureate Brand Personality Award is conferred to the individuals who have contributed significantly to the lives of people around the world through their areas of expertise. It has been earlier given to the likes of Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State to USA, Mark Zuckerberg, the late Steve Jobs and others. Indian artiste Sonu Nigam, Alka Yagnik, Udit Narayan, Datuk Shah Rukh Khan and cricketer Kapil Dev, tennis player Sania Mirza are some of the personalities who have received The International BrandLaureate Brand Personality Awards.
Adnan is also back after a 3 year hiatus with his brand new studio album ‘PRESS PLAY’. As a classical pianist, he has rendered solo performances before heads of state. As a popular artiste, he has hit the right note with Indi pop and struck a chord with Gen Next. Touted as having the fastest fingers on the keyboard, Adnan is a globetrotter not only because of the divergent geographical bearings of his career but also due to his range as a musician.
Adnan has been enthralling Indian audiences since his first release. In his career of 25 years, Adnan has won many International Awards including the Nigar Award, Bolan Academy Award, Graduate Award, Stardust Award etc. He has given a Special Award of U.N.I.C.E.F. and a United Nations Peace Medal for a song he wrote and performed for Africa.
