KINGSTON, JAMAICA | MAY 2, 2013 | Coming off a recent island-wide campaign as part of the RJR Cross Country Invasion Tour, Dancehall singjay Navino continues to make strides in his career. The artiste last week received a nomination for the upcoming MIA Awards.
The ‘Bun Hot’ and ‘Chillin Time’ singer was nominated in the ‘Best Upcoming Artiste Of The Year’ category in the Music Industry Achievers Awards.
The 2013 MIA Awards has 30 categories, including three new ones. The show’s founder, Queenie Doyley, says, “we added Collaboration of the Year, Reggae Song of the Year and Journalist of the Year. Two are directly music related; however, I believe more credit should be given to entertainment journalists who help to propel the entertainment industry to new heights each day. Plus, the educational aspect of the industry must be highlighted as well. It’s not all about the glitter and glamour – the youth must be taught that there are many sides to entertainment. We did a survey and the selected nominees were highly recommended by everybody”.
The red carpet affair is slated to unfold on June 4th at a soon-to-be-announced location.
