Manchester Awards promises to be bigger and better

The annual Manchester Awards is in its fourth year, and founder and veteran sound-system operator Pink Panther has promised it will be bigger and better than before.

The awards ceremony takes place on Saturday, March 9, at Studio 47 Club in Mandeville and will highlight and award individuals from various aspects in entertainment, artistes, promoters, clubs, stores, dancers and selectors.

An intriguing line-up of established local acts to perform will be one of the event's main attractions.

So far confirmed are Cocoa Tea, Macka Diamond, Romain Virgo, I-Octane, Charly Black, Stacious, Nesbeth, Anthony Cruz and 5 Star Camp artistes Rae Tay and Mr Cool.

Music will be provided by Black Kat, Bass Oddessy, Stone Love, Black Love and Manchester-based selectors Niney Badness, Bad Ras, Country Tiger, Don Hype, Reptile Bling, Yellow Skoolaz and Little Vishus.

Pink Panther, renowned for his ferocious 'sound clash' battles, said the awards ceremony has grown steadily over the years and is poised to become one of the most important awards show in Manchester, subsequently the island.

"A lot has developed over the four years. The awards show has moved from strength to strength. It has the potential to be the biggest in Jamaica," he said.

The Manchester Awards is sponsored by Guinness and Taj-Vaughn Jonson's newly built music website, www.PantaSon.com.
