Jamaica music awards gets funding

Numerous previous attempts at a Jamaican music awards have tragically buckled under the pressures of a fickle and seemingly untameable music industry. But executives of the Recording Industry Association of Jamaica (RIAJam) hope that with the establishment of a Reggae Music Academy, things will be different this time around."History has shown where previous awards have failed... but I believe RIAJam can make this one work," said association president, Cleveland 'Clevie' Browne- one half of the famous producing duo 'Steely and Clevie'.He told Splash that, "things are well under way for the development of the Reggae Music Academy". Browne added that RIAJam has received some euro80,000 Euros from the Private Sector Development Programme (PSDP)- a portion of which is to assist with the formation of the said Academy for the awards project. The money is also to be used in developing a Sound Recording Producers Collections Society and the expansion of the RIAJam website.Roland Henry
