Seth Sentry has been named the Channel [V] Oz Artist of 2012, beating finalists Ball Park Music, Delta Goodrem and Reece Mastin to the fan-voted award.
The Melbourne MC took the greatest share of 1.66 million votes and was crowned winner during the final episode of Channel [V] music show The Riff this morning.
Sentry will hope to emulate the success of last year’s winner and fellow rapper 360, who went on to become a breakthrough star of 2012 and a first-time ARIA winner.
Sentry has already tasted success with his debut album This Was Tomorrow peaking at number six in the ARIA Chart after winning glowing reviews.
He will travel to the US for the South By Southwest music conference in April, having completed several national tours, including the Fat As Butter and Sprung Festivals.
To celebrate the win, Sentry will headline the first of Channel [V]’s summer island parties in Sydney Harbour on December 17.
