07/05/2021 by Reggaeville
Originally scheduled for February 28th as the distinguished concluding event of Jamaica’s officially designated Reggae Month, the JaRIA Honour Awards were delayed due to measures implemented to protect the production team and participants from the COVID19 pandemic. The virtual presentation was aired on Sunday, July 4. Watch it HERE!
The winners were announced already in early February (see the full list below), but the show revealed the winners in two categories voted by the public: Khalia was voted Breakthrough Artiste of the Year and Koffee's Lockdown took the Song of the Year award.
In the category Extra Ordinary Impact On The Reggae Industry - Media three awards were presented in the following subcategories:
- Secular: Allan Hope "Mutabaruka"
- Gospel: Tony Young
- New Media: REGGAEVILLE
This award and recognition makes us very proud and it is an amazing honour to be mentioned among these great Reggae legends. Watch Reggaeville's full acceptance speech on top of this news or click here! Congratulations to all winners and big up JaRIA!
