Stone Love Awards
Stone Love's 36th Annual Awards at Mas Camp, Oxford Road was a star studded event. The Deejay of the Year Male and Female went to Vybz Kartel and D'Angel respectively, while Mavado was named Singjay of the Year.n(I want someone to tell me what a Singjay is?) Serani was named Singer of the Year, and the Best New Artist, Male and Female went to Konshens and Pamputae. Etana collected the award for Singer of the Year, and Stone Love selector, Diamond was named Employee of the Year.
Every year this event runs overtime. This year was no different. Stone Love's anniversary celebration was an all-in-one award ceremony, concert, party, flashback (a 'Real Rock' special section ended with Buju Baton chanting "soun' fe dead"), dance display (a series of groups among those who closed the event), celebrity acknowledgement (Usain Bolt was escorted up by the Magnum girls and displayed his dancing skills) and as usual he was doing his "gully" dance for the crowds.
