Mavado Nominated for DJ and SingJay of the Year
There is doubt as to who won the clash at sting last year... but I'm sure there should be no doubt as to who is the artist of the year... in the dancehall arena. I read an article were Mavado was nominated in two categories, one for the HYPE TV Male SingJay of the year and the other being male DJ of the year.
Now me scratch my head.. and a say something dont right here. Let me see the rule book.. Oh! there is none is there?
I heard Beenie complaining sometime ago when Mavado got an award for DJ of the year and he shouldn't have because he is a singer. Well he was not nominated as a singer, he is a SingJay and a DJ... i think!!
A singjay is not as smooth as a singer and not as rapid as a DJ. Mavado in some of his songs go rapid on the verse and slow on the chorus.. so he is singjaying and functioning as a DJ as well. But these days everyman a sing and DJ them thing, first time they use to call everything Djing or singing.. SingJay came about round about the time when they were trying to find a category for artiste like Mr. Vegas who was also nominated along the rest of the Alliance camp namely Demarco, Serani and Bugle.
These artiste you could not safely put them in a DJ category.. they singjay 90% of the time.
So me a wonder if they want to please both Alliance and Empire camps by putting Mavado in a singjay category..it seems justified still but at the same time they confuse the issue with the DJ nomination, chances are the Gully Gad just might take the whole a dem.. .. All whe a gwaan still Kartel do a lot of singJaying last year.. so mi nuh know still, he has at least 3 tunes can be considered singjay quality.
Suh it guh yah my youth, to get the trailer load a money you have to go where the money is..
Big up Daville mi understand that the man a mash-up the Japanese computer dem.. cause dem nuh stop downlaod his songs till it reach number 1 in the country for the most downloaded.. 'ichiban'... Domo Arigato!!
