About the EME Awards:
Richard 'Richie B' Burgess, renowned radio personality and founder of the prestigious Excellence in Music and Entertainment (EME) Awards, envisioned an authentic and dedicated awards ceremony for Jamaican music and entertainment, fashioned after the famed Grammy Awards, with grandeur and pageantry characteristic of such an awards ceremony. His vision has come to fruition.
Since its inception in 2005, as a small 'in studio' production, The EME Awards has also gained unwavering support and popularity, becoming a much larger and recognized event on Jamaica's entertainment calendar. Over 85% of the awardees were in attendance for the 2008 production, a first for any local awards production. This is a clear indication of the respect the industry has for this event, motivating us to continue to improve the product.
