PARTY MONARCH, Soca Royale and Tune-of-the-Crop winner Anderson Blood Armstrong leads the list of nominees for the upcoming Barbados Music Awards (BMAs) with seven nominations.
These include nominations for Male Entertainer Of The Year, Best Soca Single (Male), and Songwriter Of The Year.
International recording star Rihanna is close behind on six, followed by soca diva Alison Hinds with five. The sweet-singing boys in the St Leonard’s Boys’ 100 Boys Choir, who impressed at NIFCA 2009, have landed four nominations including one in the newly introduced category for Best Choir/Chorale.
Producer of the BMAs, Ronnie Morris, said the January 8 awards at the Gymnasium of the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex was the lead-in to the Barbados leg of Caribfest, slated for the following night at the same venue.
Morris said the inaugural Caribfest was designed to bring together awardees from the different music awards in the Caribbean for a regional awards event.
“We’re celebrating Caribbean music, but in this the first year what we are going to be doing mainly is honouring icons of the past . . . We will have the first show celebrating the love of Caribbean culture and the best of the music business,” he explained. (YB)
