Unfortunately we have to report yet another major event cancellation due to covid-19. This time around it is the annual Queens of Reggae Island Honorary Ceremony, which is usually held in the month of October.
The event, which started approximately five years ago, is committed to highlighting and honoring Jamaica’s influential women in entertainment.
Beenie Man‘s new single, “Election Time,” done in collaboration with Swiss producer 808 Delavega, is now available on selected music platforms. The song is featured on the producer’s self titled upcoming album, schedule for release in December.
The 2020 International Women Achievers Awards (IWAA), which was scheduled for Saturday, September 26th at Margaritaville in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, has been postponed! Though we did not learn of the official reason for the cancellation, one can only assume that the rise in the number of covid-19 cases on the island played a part.
Fans and supporters Capleton and Ken Boothe, who were both confirmed to perform, are encouraged to visit iwaawards dot org for the new date.
On Friday, October 2nd, Sizzla Kalonji will release a brand new twelve-track album, titled “Million Times.” This project will show his softer side, as it’s mostly love songs as oppose to the revolutionary sounds we are accustomed to getting from him.
“Imperfection” is the newest release from dancehall artist Jahmiel. The song was published only a few days ago – on September 18th – via the Sponge Music label. This is a powerful record that will hopefully be supported by the local media, as it is an apparent attempt to speak to youths involved in the ongoing crime and violence happening on the island.
