The IRAWMA (International Reggae and World Music Awards) went down this past Sunday. Thanks to Rhona Fox Inc, I was able to work the Red Carpet festivities and attend the show, so I have the inside scoop on what went down. The artists, that actually attended ,came out with much style and carried nice vibes.

So my job was organizing all the media and press coverage on the red carpet, you would think that the diva attitude would be exemplified by the artists. The most diva-like attitude came from the press! Mostly the TV crews who thought they were just as important as the celebs, but that’s another story.  The awards were given by the presenters and the list I’m sure you’ve seen already, if not click HERE

Here are a few highlights of the night Kymani Marley spoke to every media outlet and even chilled the people around the way in Harlem, signing autographs and taking pictures.  Shaggy was most entertaining artist of the night with a drink in hand the entire night and full a joke! I was so glad to Machel Montano get the entertainer of the year award, but upset that no one really clapped for him. The ladies were looking gorgeous on the carpet with bright colors and all smiles.  (Barbie is crazy tall! I felt like a midget next to her, I see why people call her baby giant!) Beenie Man was unable to collect his awards so Barbie’s baby bro did it on her, his behalf.  I think the artists seemed to have more fun than the patrons and media personnel…I think we you all should loosen up a bit! Shaggy’s performance was the best of the night, Kymani did a rendition of his father’s “Turn Your Lights Down”,  Taurus Riley was the MVP of the night getting the biggest crowd approval for Best Male Vocal, Jadine worked the crowd through technical difficulties, Macka had girl “Hula Hoopin’” all over the stage, D’angel gave a great attempt at setting the crowd on fire with “Blaze”, Ce’cile’s acapella of “Ride or Die”, Etana’s power house vocals were well received on “Warrior Love” And every gathered on stage for the “One Love” fest. Great times!
