In 2016 the entertainment fraternity was a year filled with challenges, many experienced daunting trials and for some it was triumph, while others saw a mix of fortune.
One such industry player who experienced the latter was recording artiste Nesbeth who had to come to grips with the death of his wife and sister only months apart while receiving death threats to his family from unscrupulous promoters in Britain amid having the most successful year of his career. Despite all this the singer prevailed after his inspirational anthem 'My Dream' was named 'Song of The Year' by an esteem panel at ONStage TV over the weekend.
Nesbeth managed to fend of strong competition for top gunners such as Alkaline who got nominated for 'City', Popcaan' 'Ova Dweet', Vybz Kartel' with 'Fever' and Sean Paul's 'Cheap Thrills'. Though Sean Paul song had more global reach, Nesbeth' 'My Dream' had more impact across all the various demographics worldwide and also created history after he was invited by newly sworn-in Jamaican Prime Minister, The Most Honourable Andrew Holness to perform at his inauguration; Mr. Holness later joined him on stage during the performance.
Speaking with 876ENT, the Rastafarian crooner says he was very pleased with the recognition and vowed to continue doing uplifting and inspirational music that will motivate not just the current fans but generations to come.
Nesbeth is currently promoting the official video for 'D.I.A.L (Devil Is A Liar)' along with the singles "Road To Glory"and "Live Every Minute".
