THE 1st ANNUAL DUBBY'S WINNERS!🔥






From the The Jamaica Gleaner : Lila Iké, Protoje, Koffee and Chronixx were the big winners at the inaugural staging of the Dubby’s Awards. Lila Ike walked away with the award for Best Reggae Album/EP (Female) for her project, The ExPerience, while Protoje won the award on the male side in the same category for his album, In Search of Lost Time. Koffee nabbed a Dubby for Best Reggae Single (Female) for her critically acclaimed single, Pressure, while Chronixx copped the male award in the same category for his single, Dela Move.

The Dubby’s Awards is the brainchild of co-creator of Dubwise Jamaica, Jason Panton. In an interview with The Gleaner back in January, Panton said that after years of requests from music practitioners for a global reggae award show hosted in Jamaica by Jamaicans, he and his team decided it was time to answer the call. Albeit virtual and not devoid of the usual technical difficulties associated with such events, Panton said the response for the début of the Dubby’s was overwhelming. He added that the show, which was live-streamed on the Dubwise Instagram page on Saturday, provided a good curtain closer for Reggae Month and its celebratory events.


We are looking to the next staging of The Dubby's and excited to meet and exceed the expectations of our loyal and royal Dubwise Family.
