The Recording Academy has announced the 2022 Grammy nominations for the highly anticipated ‘Best Reggae Album’ category.

The 64th Grammy Awards’ Best Reggae Album nominees are Spice, Etana, Sean Paul, Jesse Royal, Gramps Morgan, and SOJA.

The Recording Academy’s YouTube channel has revealed six finalists for this year’s Grammy Awards instead of the usual five.

Both men were tried before Supreme Court judge Justice Leighton Pusey for the murder of Cassava Piece resident, Lorenzo “Israel” Thomas, who was shot and killed on June 5, 2018, and his body burnt beyond recognition after his house was set afire, according to the Jamaica Observer.

The victim’s killers attempted to sever his head but aborted that plan because the machete was “too dull.” They then poured gasoline on the house and body before setting them on fire.

Mavado’s son was represented by Peter Champagnie QC, who told media reporters that the defense will be appealing the verdict.
