The IRAWMA award marks Nesbeth’ third for the year, he previously won ‘Song of the Year’ at the 2016 JARIA Awards and the UNIA Marcus Garvey Award for Music in August
2016 was a roller coaster of a year for Reggae Artist NESBETH!
We watched as he painfully and publicly mourned the lost his beautiful wife and mother of his children to long battle with cancer, then we watched him lose is beloved sister within 3 months of his wife passing! We all watched as Nesbeth pulled off a MONSTER HIT with his “MY DREAM”. The timing of it all was rather unreal.
With tremendous resolve, he took on the roll as fulltime single parent full on, planning birthday parties, attending school functions; all while he’s working hard, traveling the world performing what had become a legitimate ANTHEM of 2015/2016!
Nesbeth’s dream seemed a reality ; October 2nd was the International Reggaé & World Music Awards (IRAWMA) and yes NESBETH among several other Reggae heavy hitters were present but he came away the coveted tittle of owning the BEST SONG OF THE YEAR 2016! In accepting the award said the Trench Town native said, “Winning the IRAWMA for ‘Best Song of the Year’ on my Birthday was more than a present… tears of joy. I would like to dedicate this to my Wife, My Children, My Team and my Loyal Fans thanks be to Jah.”
