Fresh off the Grammy awards nominations, Eddy Kenzo is continuing to write history as far as awards is concerned.
News reaching our desk indicates that Kenzo has been nominated in the International Reggae And World Music Awards (IRAWMA).
Recent weeks have seen Eddy Kenzo dominate the news headlines for his controversial comparison between his songs and the late Philly Bongole Lutaaya’s.
In that time, he has also released a brand new song titled ‘Bombastic’ whose visuals will be dropping on our screens anytime soon.
On Saturday, the Tweyagale hit maker was presented with yet another opportunity to add to his ever-growing trophy cabinet.
Kenzo was nominated in the best Afrobeat Entertainer category alongside Nigeria’s Burna Boy and Tems, Tanzania’s Diamond Platnumz, and Kenya’s Willy Paul.
Themed “Reggae Rise”, the 40th edition of the IRAWMA awards will be held in Jamaica’s capital Kingstone on Sunday 7th May 2023.
According to the organizers of the awards, voter’s decisions should be based on materials released between January 2021 and December 2022.
Additionally, voters are advised to consider the social relevance of materials; originality and sales; the scope of local and national performances; quality of performances, and stage appearances.
Voters are only allowed to vote once, as casting multiple votes will cause one’s votes to be voided.
Duplicate or non-working emails and phone numbers will as well not be counted, hence be cautious before voting.
Meanwhile, Shaggy, Sean Paul, PopCaan Emperor, Koffee, and Kabaka Pyramid have been nominated in the category of Reggae & World Music Bob Marley Award for Entertainer of the Year.
