Sevana, the talented Jamaican songbird, is once again in the spotlight after securing a nomination at the upcoming Caribbean Music Awards (CMA) in New York City.
After overcoming legal issues last November, the singer has been nominated in the “Breakthrough Artist (Reggae)” category, where she will compete against Jamaican counterparts Kabaka Pyramid, Jaz Elise, Mortimer, and Royal Blu for the coveted title.
Although Sevana has been relatively quiet on the music scene since her legal woes, her last public appearance was in February at Protoje’s Lost In Time Festival at the Lawns of Hope Garden in Kingston, where she delivered a commendable performance. Now, with a nomination at the CMA’s, she has an opportunity to showcase her immense talent and reconnect with fans.
The Caribbean Music Awards, organized by the Caribbean Elite Group, will unfold on August 31 at the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn. The event aims to celebrate the creativity and contributions of artists from the region, recognizing excellence in various genres, including Reggae, Dancehall, Soca, Kompa, and Zouk. With over twenty categories, including “Album of the Year,” “Song of the Year,” and “Lifetime Achievement,” the awards ceremony will honour outstanding artists who have made a significant impact in the industry.
Hosting the event will be the multi-award-winning Haitian rapper and actor Wyclef Jean. This star-studded evening promises to be a celebration of Caribbean talent, diversity, and creativity, providing a platform to exhibit the region’s rich musical heritage.
