Jamaican Dancehall entertainer Spice escapes death & Rakes in Eight Award Nominations

The “Stage show Boss“, Spice, has returned to the island after both an exciting and terrifying time in Paris, France.

Spice, who was present in Paris during the Charlie Hebdo attacks by Muslim extremists, says although the tour was a success, she is happy to be safely back in the island and “my prayers are continuously with all my fans and friends in France.”

Upon her return, Spice received the wonderful news that she was nominated for a whopping eight awards at the Youth View Awards.

"I'm the only female in the "Favourite Dancehall Artiste" of the year category and that's an overwhelming feeling. I've worked for that to be up there with the males who are dominating dancehall," says Spice.

“I’m the only female in the “Favourite Dancehall Artiste” of the year category and that’s an overwhelming feeling. I’ve worked for that to be up there with the males who are dominating dancehall,” says Spice.

The other categories Spice has been nominated for are: Favourite Local Music Video – So Mi Like It; Favourite Local Artiste of the Year; Hottest Summer Song of the Year – So Mi Like It; Favourite Musical Collaboration with two singles, Only Thing Me Want and Conjugal Visit feat. Vybz Kartel; Fashion Icon and finally, the Young Hot and Hype Female of the Year.

To have eight nominations this year is truly a success by itself. Whether I win all of them, or not, I’m already a winner. But, I know that So Mi Like it was one of the biggest songs last year, so of course I’m expecting to take home some awards, especially that one,” says Spice.

Fans can continue voting for Spice by texting the category number and her name, (Spice), to 1876-444-4202 or follow her on twitter at @spiceofficial for the details on how to vote.

“I have taken the time out of my fully-booked schedule to be in attendance at the Awards and I really can’t wait to see my fans,” says Spice.

The Youth View Awards is scheduled to take place on February 21 at the National Indoor Sports Centre, Kingston.
