    Post Talent in the spotlight


    THE LIVING Legend award winner, Gabby.


    Published on: 1/10/06.

    by Ricky Jordan


    In a show filled with glitz, glamour and surprises, the Barbados Music Awards was dominated by Rihanna, who predictably took the lion's share of awards at Sherbourne Centre Sunday night.

    Frankly describing the Best Reggae/Dancehall Album as her "first award" of eight overall she repeatedly thanked her family, including her maternal grandparents who had flown in from New York, as well as producer "Uncle Evan" Rogers and his wife Jackie, and label Def Jam for believing in her.

    "I also want to thank all of Barbados, which has really supported me," said the gold and platinum-selling artiste who has just landed endorsement deals with Nike and JC Penny.

    Her praise also went to Barbados Music Awards producer, Ronnie Morris, and her alma mater Combermere, as she posed with handfuls of awards for Best Reggae/Dancehall Album, Best Dance Single, Song Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Best New Artiste, Female Artiste of the Year, Best Selling Female Artiste and Entertainer Of The Year.

    The only award she didn't win as a nominee was the Best R&B Single which was taken by Alison Hinds with Roll.

    Rihanna, who ended the show with four songs from her Music Of The Sun debut album, headed a cast of local talent whose appearances and performances were as glittering as the setting at Sherbourne Conference Centre.

    The four-hour show featured a potpourri of performances including Natahlee and Shontelle with Colours; Kareen Clarke who gave an emotional rendition of I'm Running To You; Alison Hinds who had fans waving as she and her dancers wined to Roll, and Carlyn Leacock whose medley of original classics like The Clock brought the audience to its feet.

    Other performers were JCNT, Magnet Man, TC, Dwayne Husbands, Paula Hinds, Sister Marshall, David Kirton, Toni Norville, Kimberley Inniss, Alan Sheppard, The Merrymen.

    In an event reminiscent of North American music awards galas, Sherbourne was transformed with a beautiful backdrop flanked by large monitors, even though the space proved a tad too confined for the standing-only crowd dressed in their finest from tailor-made suits to exotic gowns by top local designers.

    However, from red carpet entry to the stage, the first Barbados Music Awards was an exceptional production marked by clockwork precision and tight security that ensured celebrities and specially invited guests entered along the red carpet while paying patrons filed through the side doors.

    Celebrities included Prime Minister Owen Arthur, Def Jam senior vice president Jay Browne, SRP Records producer Carl Sturken, acclaimed Belgian pianist Charles Loos, Grammy-nominated vocalist Little G who has acted in the Madea comedy series, as well as representatives from Universal Records, VP Records and BMG.

    Rihanna also led those alighting from limousines and being escorted into the once-controversial venue which, having become renowned as a conference/entertainment centre, was elevated in status Sunday by the cream of the local and international music industries.

    "These are the new business leaders in Barbados," was how Minister of Commerce Lynette Eastmond described them.

    Post Music Awards simply world-class, says PM


    Eight times a winner. The Barbados Music Awards on Sunday night was dominated by Rihanna, who took the lion's share of the awards at Sherbourne Centre. The singing senation, who won in the categories of Best Reggae/Dancehall Album, Best Dance Single, Song Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Best New Artiste, Female Artiste of The Year, Best Selling Female Artiste and Entertainer Of The Year, thanked her family, her producers and the people of Barbados, whom she said "really supported me". Here, Rihanna has her hands full: eight awards in the inaugural Barbados Music Awards.

    "SIMPLY WORLD-CLASS!"

    That's the verdict of Prime Minister and Minister of Culture Owen Arthur on the Barbados Music Awards, held on Sunday night at Sherbourne Conference Centre.

    "It was worth the effort. I am glad my office was associated with it and we will continue to support it. We wish all the artistes of Barbados all the very best because this is the standard we must not only hold, but use as a platform to go to higher heights," said the Prime Minister, who was also the event's patron.

    The awards, the first of what is intended to be an annual event, was a near perfect production of performance and presentations. Barbadian Def Jam Recording artiste Rihanna copped most of the awards, and producer Chris Allman of Slam City directly and indirectly, generated 25 nominations and eleven awards.

    The two most recent grand major music awards were the MEGOB awards in 1989 and the NATION Music Awards in 1997.

    Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office Senator John Williams echoed Arthur's sentiments on the high quality of the awards show.

    "Clearly from what we have observed tonight, Barbados has arrived on the world stage and it is simply for us to sustain ourselves there.

    "We have the material; they were all Barbadian artistes. I felt proud of all of them and you could see from the response of the crowd that everyone was indeed pleased with where the Barbados music industry had reached," Williams said.

    Winner of the Icon Award, Nicholas Brancker, who received the crystal obelisk from the Prime Minister lauded Timeless Entertainment directed by Ronnie Morris.

    "I think the music awards is a great thing. The only way to keep people motivated is to have events that celebrate people's efforts.

    "It is also important to keep people aware of the fact that there is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes and that it is not all about glitter and glamour, but it is about hard work, lack of finance sometimes, it's about struggle and sacrifice," Brancker said.

    "This hopefully will be the beginning of much to come. As we can see our music is now 'officially international' and we just have to keep working."

    Winner of the Producer Of The Year and Best Soca/Calypso Album Of The Year and Best Compilation Of The Year Chris Allman, said the Barbados Music Awards was an event long overdue.

    "Without a doubt it is a wonderful recognition of the architects, stalwarts and pioneers in the music industry.

    "A lot of the awardees have not been recognised in Barbados, Charles Lewis being one of them. We have made some serious inroads last year with Rihanna doing extremely well the first Barbadian artiste to have a No. 2 on Billboard, a major achievement in itself, and Rupee as well," Allman told the NATION in an interview.

    People are already complaining......it was on the call in programmes yesterday...

    but before we jump on the complainers.....just think
    I for one think the dress by Nefetari was stunning however I too questioned whether it was age appropriate.......sorry for sounding like a fuddy duddy but my 17 yr old daughter can look like a very sexy teen without that plunging neck line....plus I also thought the frill was a bit over powering it hid her shape and neat waist.

    but to each his own...she will be 18 soon and well only she can decide what is appropriate for herself........

    Congrats to her and all the other artist from what I saw in the news everyone looked so dapper especially Billy Kincaid.
    We going from Sun til Sun.......

    Anyway, here's yet another article.

    RIHANNA DOMINATES BARBADOS MUSIC AWARDS
    Web Posted - Tue Jan 10 2006
    By Allison Ramsay


    Internationally based recording artiste Rihanna earned her first ever music award in her homeland Barbados, and not only left with one but seven more to her name at the first ever Barbados Music Awards (BMA).

    At the Sherbou rne Conference Centre on Sunday night, she copped awards for Best Reggae/ Dancehall Album and Album of the Year for "Music of the Sun". She won Best Dance Single, Best Music Video and Song of the Year for "Pon De Replay", and was voted Best New Artist; Female Artist of the Year; Best Selling Female Artist of the Year and Entertainer of The Year.

    A humble Rihanna thanked her management staff, recording company, family, friends and fans for their support and performed four of her hit songs "Pon De Replay", "No No No", " Now I Know" and "Let Me" to a hushed packed room. She was one of the 15 performers who gave their all to an appreciative crowd that night where chairs were few and standing ovations were many.

    At the event, which was formulat ed to honour Barbadian music greats, the BMA presented an Award of Merit in memory of the late Janice Millington for her tireless dedication to the development of Barbados' music industry and "Icon Award" winner Nicholas Brancker collected this on her behalf.

    Brancker will be the only Barbadian to win this prestigious honour in the BMA's history. He was bestowed this since he is the individual who has single-handedly caused a revolution in the way Barbadian music is perceived in the region and beyond and assisted in creating a music industry for Barbados directly due to his input.

    The other prestigious awards went to The Merrymen and Charles D. Lewis who each received a Lifetime Achievement Award for selling over one million records and for working within the music industry for several decades. Also winning a coveted award was The Mighty Gabby who was presented with the Living Legend Award for demonstrating a level of genius in music and in the performing arts to effect change and expose Barbados as a cultural Mecca.

    Thirty-two people who have contributed to Barbados' music industry also received Cornerstone Awards. They were: Arturo Tappin; Jimmi Haynes; El Verno Del Congo; Joseph Niles; Sister Marshall; Paula Hinds; Desmond Weekes; Richard Stoute; Carolyn Leacock; The Poundas; KB Sharp; Phillip Forrester; Toni Norville; David Kirton; CiCi; Sophia Lovell; Peter Coppin; Chris Allman; Derry Etkins; Lil' Rick; Alison Hinds; Anderson Armstrong; Terry Arthur; Red Plastic Bag; Mac Finga ll; Grynner; Ras Iley; Kid Site; MADD; John King; Alan Sheppard and Edwin Yearwood.

    Soca Revolution/ Slam City represented by music producer Chris Allman swept away Best Soca/ Calypso Album; Best Compilation and Producer of the Year. Several artist es who Allman worked with on the album also won awards that night, such as the Best Ragga-Soca Single Female and male categories respectively, that went to Keisha Christian for "Love Zone" ; Tony "Rebel" Bailey for "Sweetest Thing"; Natahlee & Shontelle with "Colours" for Best Soca Single Female, and the Queen of Soca, Alison Hinds, reigned supreme with Best R&B Single "Roll".

    Other awardees were Mr. D.J's "Waistline Shots" winning Best Soca Single Male; Best Social Commentary Female and Male went respectively to TC with " Know Wah Ya Got" and Kid Site's "Only Bout Hey".

    Kareen Clarke took two awards for Best Gospel Album, "First Fruit" and Best Gospel Single, "Running To You". Best Christmas Album was "Caribbean Christmas Vol.3", and Shakey Ranks was gone but not forgotten as he won Best Reggae Single for "Money Grabber".

    Billy Kincaid and Shontelle were ecstatic after winning Best Hip-Hop Single for "Take Me Home," Shontelle also captured Songwriter of the Year.

    Magnet Man won Best Music Video for "How To Love", and Best Jazz Single went to Paul Thorne for "Friends". Instrumentalist Of The Year was won by world renowned Arturo Tappin. Band of the year went to Krosfyah, and another crowd favourite, Rupee, won Best-Selling Male Artist of the Year and Male Artist of the Year.

    Starting 'bang' on time at 8 p.m., patrons enjoyed the four-hour long show, and many agreed that the BMA 2006 awards was the place to be with high calibre performances to be seen from Barbado s' upcoming artistes and legends alike.

    First Barbados Music Awards Sold Out
    Web Posted - Tue Jan 10 2006
    By Allison Ramsay


    A massive crowd was on hand for the first Barbados Music Awards held at the Sherbourne Conference Centre on Sunday and at five minutes to eight in the evening, there was still a long line outside for the sold-out show.

    When patrons heard that there was no more seating left, they expressed disappointment, with one woman even volunteering to stand and on the inside many had to do just that. Another patron standing outside asked, "Didn't they expect the tickets to sell?" Another wanted a refund for her money. But whilst waiting to see what would happen, there was no disruptive behaviour.

    At the press conference held after the show, director of Timeless Barbados Entertainment Agency Ronnie Morris said that regardless of the situation which took place earlier in the night, all persons who had passes or tickets were accommodated.

    He added that the show was sold out and based on the numbers, who were trying to get tickets to the show, Timeless could have sold out an 8000-seat venue.

    When asked why he chose the Flamboyant Room, one of the smaller rooms at the Sherbourne Conference Centre, he explained: "We wanted to make sure that the show was a sold out success the first time around. We also had to think about things like quality control and having a venue size which we were accustomed to...
    However, a bigger venue may be on the cards for next year's show since according to Morris, Timeless will do site visits at the Wildey Gymnasium this year.

    Acknowledging that "we were not taken seriously at first," Morris said that from the obstacles that were in the way for this year"s show, the agency will work harder to produce one of the biggest shows in 2007 with the continued support of sponsors who had faith in the show.

    Morris revealed that an international act may be coming to perform at the show next year. While not disclosing the details of this, he said there will be meetings next week to discuss this with potential candidates being 50 Cent and Mary J. Blige. He also said that financial backing for this undertaking will not be a problem.

    According to him, there will be less categories than there were this year and it was a deliberate action to have so many. He said categories will be consolidated with only one Cornerstone Award winner for the next year compared to this year's 32. Morris also said new categories for classical music and best alternative single will be added next year, stating that this move would be done to involve these genres of music.

    He also said the show will be shorter next year and was pleased with the response and with the international journalists coming from the BBC, MTV Tempo, Caribbean territories and the United States, adding that CBC will try to air the show as soon as possible.
