Though unable to attend due to other professional engagement, the Bun Up Road singer was the recipient of the 'Lifetime Achievement Award' at the 5th staging of the annual Music Industry Achievers Awards (MIA) held at the Courtleigh Auditorium, New Kingston, last Friday. The singer was also nominated for 'Male Artiste of the Year' and 'Song Of The Year' with Good Book.

Known for being instrumental in some of the biggest music projects locally, Demarco says he is very pleased that an organisation such as the MIA sees it fitting to recognise him for his work throughout the years.

M.O.P., Timbaland, Missy Elliot and Shaggy, among others. He has toured extensively across the globe, accumulating a surfeit of accolades namely: The first dancehall act to grace the cover of Infuzion, an Arabian magazine, and nominated for 2014 Afro Song of the Year in Australia for Summer Time with Ghanaian star Samini.

The multifaceted entertainer is also known for concocting some of the most successful projects in the dancehall sphere over the last decade, namely, the Mission, Shoot Out, Side Walk University, Gang War, March Out, Warning and Pon Di Edge rhythms among others. His most recent hits includes Lazy Body, Continue Whine, Love Yuh Wah Love, Ride, Bun Up Road, Puppy Tail and the heavy-hitting street anthem Good Book.
