Grenadian soca artiste Brother B received his second nomination from Hollywood at the annual NAACP Image awards in Los Angeles.
Nominations were announced this week at an event in America for the NAACP image awards 2013.
Brother B has been nominated under the ‘Outstanding World Music Album’ category for his album released this year entitled ‘Diversionary’.
The Diversionary album has been a fast selling album since its release on Itunes, iribbeantunes, amazon, spotify and other digital retailers, in August this year.
The album includes collaborations with Grenada’s Road March King 2012, Boyzie, London-based female duo First class, Melz and Grenada’s Soca Monarch King 2011, Terror Kid.
The album has a host of producers from around the world and locally including the UK’s award winning Soca Child who produced ‘Suspension’, award nominated producer SD Productions also from the UK (whinning time & no second love), as well as Jimmi King based in New York, Lyndon Pope from Youngstarz studios based in Grenada, JRE, Doggy Productions (Juicy Fruit) and Mr. Roots productions (Drinking time & Ah Bet).
During the Hamper donation in Grenada last Friday, Brother B’s management presented him with his certificate for his 2012 nomination for his album ‘Carnival Fever’ from the NAACP image awards in Hollywood.
Brother B was booked mid 2011 for an event in London at the same date as the awards in Hollywood.
Brother B who didn’t want to let fans down, turned up to the event in London and his management sent an assistant to attend the event in Hollywood.
Brother B created history with his nomination at the NAACP image awards earlier in 2012.
This second nomination creates history for Soca Music yet again as this is the first time a Soca artiste has been nominated twice in Hollywood. No other artist has been nominated in Hollywood previously. This shows that Soca Music has the potential to reach higher heights.
The Diversionary album is available on Itunes, Amazon, Spotify, Iribbeantunes.com and all major digital retailers and is distributed by King Chero Records.
Brother B and his management will be attending the awards, which will be held in Hollywood on February 1, 2013.
