Check the photos of the awards ceremony that took place in Kingston on March 12th.

The seventh staging of the EME (Excellence in Music & Entertainment) awards was recently held on the historic lawns of Devon House in Kingston. The event which is geared towards mostly young and upcoming artistes in the entertainment industry attracted overseas rapper Eve, Trina, actor Rock Dunbar and comedian Razor who co-hosted the event.

The event got off to a late start and was marred by several production flaws. Unfortunately, a good majority of the artistes who won their awards did not turn up to collect them. This led to both Shaggy & Wayne Wonder imploring members of the music fraternity to support the event as it was geared towards them. Some the high points where the performances of Wayne Wonder, Andrew Tosh, son of Peter Tosh, Etana, Lincoln Minott Jr., Trina and Lady Saw and Eve performing on stage for the first time. The audience was also treated to a fashion show by Brownstone models showing the latest designs by some of our local designers.
