Booster Shot: UK Soca Awards! Who knew?

>> Tuesday, October 21, 2008're right. Everyone who has been asking me if there are TWO sets of soca awards. All along, I thought you were referring to the International Reggae and World Music Awards Show. But alas, our friends in the UK have been conspiring in secret. Well, not in secret...just not in ear shot. It took a while to cross the pond. However, I've got the info now.

Do not be confused with the event I've been talking about for the last two days (or anytime prior to that, for that matter) This is the first time such an event has taken place in the UK. It happened on Friday, October 17th in the Bloomsbury area of London at the Holiday Inn. You will soon notice that there are not many categories in which artists stand to earn some hardware. The bulk of the accolades go to UK-based DJs and personalities. Check it out!
