let me get this started! One of the fun things about waiting for nominations every year, is finding out if there will be any new categories. This year...BEST DJ Soca Artiste (DJ that sings) There are soooooooo many. A lot of fans don't realize it. But still, it's a funny category to me.

What do you think about the list?

Ashanti - best new male soca artist ???
FYI Ashanti is a veteran in our arena so I not even sure how to take the nomination!
weird!

Dem people at the soca awards is a joke. Did you know that they wanted to charge the artist a fee to get nominated. Its all about the money and not the music. He just throw names in a hat. Check it out the Collin Jackman Award. LOL, how you going to give a legend like Ms Rose something Jokey like that, come on have some respect.
