Fast-rising Dancehall artiste and the self-professed Dancehall Duchess, Tiana has once again proven her strong outreach in the continent of Africa as she’s been nominated for a major accolade in the mother continent.
Tiana was recently nominated for Female Artiste of the Year at the 2012 Kingston 10 Reggae Awards in Kenya. Based in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi, Kingston 10 hails as a prominent Dancehall/Reggae show that highlights many of Jamaica’s top entertainers on a daily basis; promoting the island’s key genres across the country.
Known for her strong fan base in the West African country, Tiana was nominated for Female Artiste of The Year alongside the Queen of Dancehall, Lady Saw, prominent Dancehall divas, Tifa and Ce’Cile as well as Reggae warrior, Ikaya.
Tiana had a commendable follow-up year to her breakout campaign in 2011. After scoring with hits like Bruk Out and Wine, Highest Grade and many others last year, Tiana made waves with hits like Only Girl Him Want (remix of Popcaan’s Only Man She Want), Dem a Bawl, Don’t Stop and One Stuck Whine. Dem a Bawl landed Tiana a top 10 spot on the MTV Base Africa Dancehall/Reggae charts while holding down top spot on the Kenyan charts four consecutive weeks.
The Dancehall Duchess is no stranger to award nominations this year as she not only copped a pair of nominations at the International Reggae and World Music Awards (IRAWMA) this past July, but she was named Jamaica’s top new artiste at the 2012 3B Entertainment Industry Awards in October.
Tiana is seeking your support as she contends for the Kingston 10 Reggae Award for Best Female Artiste. To participate in the process, head over to the official Kingston 10 Facebook page to cast your vote for this emerging star.
