The aim of 21st Hapilos Digital Distribution has been to create awareness in digital media, including online streaming, sales, and downloads.
The awardees were selected based on digital sales data provided by over 200 music retail outlets worldwide for music released April 1, 2016 – March 31, 2017.
The event also recognized local producers for their excellent work and also paid a special tribute to female dancehall artiste, J Capri.
Capri passed in December 2015, and a cheque for the sum of $121,000, was presented to her mother, Debbie Darwin. The cheque was addressed to the artiste’s alma mater, Wolmer’s Girls High School, by 21st Hapilos on behalf of the J Capri Foundation, which will be launched in December.
