On the heels of a stellar 2022, fast-rising deejay Jahshii will make his debut at this year’s staging of Rebel Salute at the Plantation Cove, St. Ann.
The “Born Fighter” hitmaker will take centerstage on Friday, January 20, alongside several of his peers to showcase his growing catalogue of hits to an anticipated audience.
Still, one of the hottest tickets on the dancehall scene, the artiste, whose given name is Mluleki Clarke, ended last year on a high note with the most streamed Reggae-Dancehall song on Youtube (Born Fighter – 24 million) and also secured two nominations at the upcoming Jamaica International Music Awards (JIMA).
The entertainer has been nominated in the categories of “Best Reggae/Dancehall – New Artist” and “Song of the Year” for the hit single “Born Soldier” at the inaugural JIMA Awards ceremony set for next month.
According to the organisers, JIMA is conceptualised as a vehicle to allow us, as a people, to own and honour our music instead of waiting for others to do so. It is critical because oftentimes when others include our artists in larger awards ceremonies, it is usually from their perspective regarding what/how they think about our music.
With JIMA, all awardees are selected based on the collective views of our diaspora. The event will showcase our music, our artists and honour the best among them. The invitation-only event will get underway on February 28, 2023, at 6 pm at the Nob Hill Hall in Sunrise, Florida.
