Verlando Small wins 10th Digicel Rising Stars
My Twitter timeline lit up as folks congratulated Digicel for sponsoring a programme that literally made stars of several Jamaican unknowns - namely Christopher Martin and Romain Virgo, Noddy and the fast rising Dalton Harris. I believe Rising Stars dealt a blow to the vulgarity that was overtaking Jamaican music - as well as to corrupt DJs who stood in the way of talented but financially challenged artists.
Big congrats to Michael Hogan, owner of Rising Stars for keeping his show so strong for a wonderful 10 years!
Of course - I am delighted - I have been voting for Verlando!
