In light of this morning’s [11th March] tweets by Rishi Rich regarding being ‘thrown out’ of the The UK Asian Music Awards Afterparty, The UK AMA team have responded to the tweets in the following statement by Creative Director & Co-Founder Jay Shah:
“The venue was under strict guidance from the police as it was a high profile event. All entrants were told no entry strictly after 1am – we relayed this information at the show as instructed by Sway Bar where Zolly Branch was head doorman. Mr Branch had the last say.
I came up to try get Waleed Jahangir (Mumbai Rouge Founder) and H Dhami into the venue. I had no say over authority. Its not my club. I cannot overide authority. Anger was then directed towards me by Rishi Rich & Waleed Jahangir. H Dhami was very mature about the situation. Rishi was escorted out by security as he was getting very aggressive towards me, even though I assured security that it was ok.”
Rishi Rich attended last night’s Asian Music Awards 2011 event at Camden, Roundhouse alongside buddies Jay Sean & Juggy D.
The Asian industry then came together at the UK AMA official Afterparty where Rishi Rich was thrown out.
It looks like Rishi spoke up to the UK AMA team about a certain disrespect to some of the artists in particular H Dhami!
Here is what Rishi had to say on twitter:

After months of back and forth trips to America, meeting various labels and management, Brit-Asian producer Rishi Rich has decided to join sunset entertainment group who work with the likes of Timbaland, Jim Beanz, and Diddy.
Producing massive super hits for his artists for the last decade Rishi Rich has decided to branch out and accept some of the many offers and invitations he has had in last 5 years from American labels and production houses.
One of the reasons why this bridge was not crossed earlier was his sheer commitment to his company, artists and music industry within the Desi scene.
Rishi commented “This is something me and veronica have always wanted to give our sound to the mainstream across the globe yet retaining the ethnic vibe. I will still be working with all my artists at Rishi Rich Productions and Mumbai Rouge in UK, however this amazing opportunity will only elevate the whole industry. We are very humbled to join the Sunset Family”.
We had to post up a old skool classic photo when Rishi Rich, Jay Sean, Juggy D & Mentor took Timbaland to Southall!
