The first single off Carpe Diem,“Eru,” debuted as the No. 1 song on streaming platform Audiomack earlier this month.

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.
