  1. Congrats to Lucia and Ricky T!!! 07 was the climax for our music. I hope we walk away woth something. All hail the ambassador Ricky T!!! I hope he doesn't get swell headed.

    Now Ms. Nyree, help me: what is the SLU riddim, keep forgetting. Is that tik-tok by Alpha???

  2. That's really impressive, congratulations definitely go out to Ricky T, Marie-Ann and Invader, I wish them all the best. I think we should all encourage as many persons as possible to log on and vote for Ricky T and Marie-Ann in their respective categories. I was surprised to see Marie-Ann had picked up the nominations she did because I wasn't aware she'd garnered such appeal outside of St Lucia, I'm happy for her though, that's great. It'd have been nice to see TJ get some love as well for "Coming Down De Road" a boss tune in my opinion, I think he's extremely talented and he hasn't failed to deliver another hit this year, "Wine Up On Me" is another boss tune, but I guess there's always next year.
    But go vote people and spread the word:
