The YVA has rebranded this year to Your View Award and the producers are promising a bigger and better show set for February 24. The Your View Award is already stirring up some controversies with a major snub to Vybz Kartel due to some changes in the eligibility rules. “Sampler albums or albums which are compilation of tracks from other previously released albums are not eligible.”

Vybz Kartel Trolls Alkaline For Dissing Tony Matterhorn Alkaline lead the list of nominees this year with six nods including Hottest Summer Song (Red Eye), Favorite Local and International artist, and other categorgies like Chart Topper and Collaboration. “The YVA defines an album as having no less than five different tracks,” the Your View Awards said in a statement. Alkaline, Popcaan, and Aidonia leads the 2018 Your View Awards nominees. Several other local acts who have done well in dancehall and reggae over the past year have received nominations including Spice, Shenseea, Mavado, Chronixx, Sean Paul, and more. Popcaan and Aidonia each have four nominations including nods in some of the same categories as Alkaline which means that the three of them are going head to head against each other for some of the most coveted trophies. There are some rules for some categories in case you’re wondering why some artists didn’t get included for new categories like Album of the Year and Music Video Concept.
