Queens of Reggae Island Honorary Ceremonies to honour Industry Females

Queens of Reggae Island Honorary Ceremonies to honour Industry Females

 

Jamaica’s hardworking female industry players will receive well deserved attention and recognition for their years of service. A brand new honorary event, ‘Queens of Reggae Island Honorary Ceremonies –QORIHC, will have their first staging this October in Kingston, Jamaica.

The event, staged by New York based Reggae artiste Mye Laurell through her NyteNursePro foundation, will see eight talented and hardworking females, who are experts in their various fields, getting recognition for their efforts and perseverance.

Laurell and the foundation decided to honour women specifically because activities to support women are fundamentally lacking in the Jamaican industry.

“I believe that women are the backbone of the Jamaican creative industry because we do so much to support it. My NyteNursepro organization’s mission is to Inspire, Nurture, and Entertain, so this event is perfect as it intends to motivate the current honorees to continue doing great work and to inspire other females to work hard and eventually their work will also get recognized,” Mye shared.

Honorees at this year’s ceremonies are veteran Reggae artiste Sister Nancy, whose worldwide hit “Bam Bam” is the most sampled female hit in the history of modern reggae music, gifted video director Nordia Rose, TV broadcaster Elaine Wint,  founder of Sun City Radio Doreen Billings or ‘Mama B’, Dancehall fashion designer  Audrey Farquharson, renowned Dancehall Queen, Carlene, Government Minister, Babsy Grange and Dancehall dancing Instructors Latonya Styles and Dance Ja studios.

The 2016 ceremony will be held on October 30 at the Courtleigh Auditorium and will see proceeds from the event going to support various charities under the Gregory Isaacs Foundation.
