BASS Awards Nominations Out

bass-awards

The final nominations list for the first annual BASS Awards has been released by the organizer of the Awards.

Preceding the release of the nominations, the Awards committee headed by Daddy Bosco had been meeting for three weeks, working to prune down the number to the present list after more than 300 songs were entered for this year’s Awards. Songs that got nominated for the awards this year are reggae/dancehall songs released between 2010 and 2012.

Conspicuously missing from the nominations list is Bandana who according to the committee declined to be part of the Awards, he is said to have written on his facebook page declining to be part of the Awards.
