The Music Industry Achievers Awards has announced its five ambassadors for 2014.

They are popular selector Boom Boom, female dancehall diva Danielle DI, radio disc jockey DJ Nicco, producer Seanizzle, and female deejay Macka Diamond.

The five were selected as a representation in the industry, being front-runners in their respective areas.

"This year, I have chosen Boom Boom, Seanizzle, D, Macka Diamond and DJ Nicco to be ambassadors for the Music Industry Achievers Awards, based on their work. I am very happy with who I have chosen to represent the MIA brand, and my ambassadors are equally elated to be working with me," said CEO of MIA Awards, Nackesha 'Queenie' Doyley.

The MIA Awards is an esteemed and prestigious award show that honours, recognises and awards the best creative work in music in Jamaica. The Awards boasts 27 categories, with three special awards given for outstanding contribution to the music business. This year, Jenny Jenny, Elise Kelly and Ron Muschette will be the recipients of the special awards.

This being the fourth staging of this event, Doyley promises a spectacular show featuring performances from popular local acts and a special international guest act.

"I went back to the drawing board. I have identified my weak points and I am coming this year even stronger. Nothing beats a failure but a trial and, for me, the journey continues. MIA Awards will be one of the most talked-about events for 2014," she predicted.

The event is slated to take place on July 11, 2014, while the media launch and nomination-list party will be held on April 11.

The MIA Awards remains focused on evolving with the industry in order to acknowledge the most current, breakthrough work, and will continue to recognise the creative efforts in Jamaican music.
