Richie Spice has been nominated in the reggae male vocalist category at the 13th annual Reggae Soca Music Awards which will be held on May 27th.
"Right now, I am grateful for the nomination, it is just an energy, and mi give thanks for the support of the people who support me and reggae music," he said.
The show will be a black tie affair at the Broward Centre for the Performing Arts, 201 SW Fifth Avenue in Fort Lauderdale, and will begin at 8 p.m. Richie Spice's single, 'Youths So Cold' peaked at #59 on the Billboard Top 100 singles chart last year. Spice's latest singles, 'Brown Skin' and 'Open the Door' on the Bobby Konders Massive B label, have been getting rave critical reviews and are expected to drive the sales of his upcoming album, 'In the Streets to Africa'.
"Right now, we are negotiating with a major US label to lock up distribution for the album overseas but we don't wish to disclose who at this time," Devon Wheatley, head of Fifth Element Records, said.
