Bounty Killer who has received a variety of awards, including Grammys, Moonmen, says that this award is special because it's the first time he's being recognised for the work he has done for others.

Bounty is known as the artiste who has given a voice and a microphone to a host of dancehall's top deejays when they were literally nobodies. And, although most of them have been ungrateful, Bounty still thanked them for the opportunity that he had in moulding their careers and helping to make them into household names.

Bounty Killer has been credited with giving a slew of entertainers their big break including Mavado, Vybz Kartel, Scare Dem Crew, Cham, Bling Dwag, Wayne Marshall, Aidonia and countless others.
