Estelle has followed her Mobo nominations with five nods for the 2008 UK Urban Music awards (UMAs).

It was revealed last week that the American Boy star has been nominated for five gongs at this year's Mobos and following Wednesday's announcement, she could pull in the same haul at the UMAs.

The 28-year-old singer's album Shine is up for the best album category, while her number one single American Boy - featuring Kanye West - is named in the best collaboration category.

She is also in the running for the best crossover act, best R 'n' B act and most inspiring act awards.

Estelle was nominated for this year's Mercury Music Prize but lost out to Elbow.

Amy Winehouse is up for the best neo-soul prize while the man behind her Back to Black success, Mark Ronson, has a chance to follow his best male Brit award with a best producer UMA.

There are two nominations apiece for Leona Lewis, Craig David, Dizzee Rascal, Jay Sean, Sway and Tinchy Stryder while Booty Luv could win a hat-trick of UMAs having been named in the best crossover act, best dance act and best group categories.

The new release by The Streets, Everything is Borrowed, is up for the best album prize - even though it was only released on Monday - while Mike Skinner has a chance of the best entrepreneur gong.

The sixth annual UMAs take place at London's O2 Arena on November 15th.
