The entertainer has been nominated for ‘Cultural Artiste of The Year’ and ‘Favourite Local Chart Topping Song of the Year’ for his inspirational hit ‘My Dream’.
Following a year of mix fortunes with the death of his beloved wife and sister months apart amid the most successful year of his career the Rastafarian crooner says he is very thankful for the nominations despite all the challenges.
“2016 was a very challenging year for me in many regards but I continue to prevail through it all. I want to say a special thank you to the Youth View Awards because the nominations represent not just the voice of the people but more importantly the youths and in my opinion they represent the future so it’s heart-warming to know that positive music is still making an impact on the younger generation.”
