Unnu no see awards shows seem to be taking Jamaica by storm, prompting many onlookers to ask, is wha deh gwaan?
It is the lastest craze with many being held within a few days, the many categories presents like a maze, figuring out just who would win left ones head in a daze.
Some in the industry have taken not being nominated to heart, and even start cuss pure claat, bout how some people reach in a category and dem is no popular or top ten smaddy?
Finally the aspiring ‘hollywoodites’ can legitimately skylark, red carpet and bare tings, false hair, fingers nails, tattoos and belly rings, mass a makeup, hair gel, pointed toe boot and pin strip jacket suit.
Some in the industry never looked so good, while others would have loved to loosen the fat holding girdles right where they stood, oh but if they could.
Mek I try list some of them, EME’s that a Richie B; CVM PEOPLES CHOICE you had to be a special invitee; JARIA, oh yes it was the Reggae Academy replacee, what a joke een, after last year dem try showoff pon we, anyway that, they whispered was for specific awardees; HYPE TV theirs was live across the Caribbean and had plenty a hiccups and a few mishap, bang-a-rangs, RE TV claims the first ever Caribbean music video awards show, while YOUTH VIEW AWARDS held a huge after-show.
Who even remembers the Jammy’s? Some say they were only following the Grammy’s, but soon enough it came to pass that artistes didn’t pay it no mine, thus through the years it quickly had lost its shine.
I can’t wait to see who next stands in line, eager to award a hook,, a verse, a chorus and all its rhymes!
