Want Respect? Use A Condom Fever At The Urban Music Awards
Want Respect? Use a Condom supported the Urban Music Awards this year by sponsoring the ‘Best Drum & Bass DJ / Act’. Want Respect? Use a Condom Ambassador and E4 presenter, Zezi Ifore, presented winner Shy FX with the award who beat off tough competition from Bailey, Fabio & Grooverider and Roni Size.

Behind the scenes presenters, DJ’s and artists showed their support for the Want Respect? Use a Condom campaign by wearing sweatbands emblazoned with the logo. These included host Teri Walker; ‘Best Underground DJ’ Cameo; ‘Best Newcomer’ Mr. Midas; Dappy from N-Dubz, Kiss FM’s Melvin and Rickie and even ‘Outstanding Achievement Award’ winner Gabrielle.

The sweatbands represent self respect, respect within relationships and safer sex. It’s about respecting yourself enough to protect against unplanned pregnancies and STI’s.
