Chronixx leads the nominees for the International Reggae and World Music Awards (IRAWMA) set for Broward Community College in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on October 4.
The conscious singer, who is known for songs such as Who Knows, Behind Curtain and Smile Jamaica, has received six nominations.
He is up for the Bob Marley Entertainer of the Year, Best Male Vocalist, Best Song — Who Knows, Best Album — Dread and Terrible, Best Music Video — Who Knows and Most Cutural/ Educational Entertainer.
Chronixx had a message for his homeland Jamaica and the people of Trinidad and Tobago as they clebrated 53 years of Independence on August 31.
“First of all, we are too much about Independence and I feel right now we have to focus more on our dependence. Our dependence in terms of Jamaica’s dependence to Trinidad; Trinidad’s dependence to Guyana; Guyana’s dependence to Barbados so we need to focus more on our dependence because here we are independent from a Queen who still hold the lands because the lands were not given to the natives. I don’t need Independence; we need to focus more on our dependence of each other,” said Chronixx in a recent interview with Trinidad Express.
In addition to Chronixx’s Dread and Terrible, those in the running for Best Album are: Strictly Roots from Morgan Heritage, Where We Come From by Popcaan, The Reggae Power from Sly and Robbie and Strictly the Best 50, the compilation from VP Records.
