YVA’s 2016 a success… See Clips and Pics

RADIO personalitiy and producer ZJ Chrome came up big at the 2016 staging of the Youth View Awards (YVA) held at the National Indoor Sports Centre in St Andrew, on Saturday. Although he was not present to collect his trophies, he secured wins in three categories: Favourite Producer, Favourite Party Selector, and Favourite Radio DJ.

The evening’s other multiple winners were Ishawna and Vybz Kartel, who received two each. Ishawana took the Young Hot & Hype Female category as well as the Favourite Fashion Icon Female in fine style. Kartel, despite being incarcerated, won Favourite Artiste Male Local and Favourite Dancehall Artiste.

Between the awards, the event was highlighted by several amazing performances. American teen pop sensation and headliner Pia Mia started off acoustically with Justin Bieber’s Love Yourself and then burst into her hit Do It Again while the whole crowd sang along.

“It was an honour to perform here,” she told the Jamaica Observer.

Deejay Tanto Blacks elicited a similar response. He was ‘summoned’ back to the stage after his performance to display his ‘Real Rich’ attire. Devin Di Dakta had the females dancing in the aisles while Germaine Edwards instilled some religious inspiration. The best was saved for last as Dexta Daps got going with his sultry song Morning Love, which was brought to life by a pair of dancers, all while his white and red sneakers hung around his neck. After dropping the sneakers at the feet of a female patron, he delivered the chorus from his latest song Chinese Jordan.

Other winners included Ding Dong (Favourite Dancer); Prince Pine (Favourite Social Media Personality); Alkaline (Young Hot & Hype Male Award); and Beres Hammond (Favourite Vintage Artiste).

And this is how our night started… But it ended with a bang! #YVAs2016 was great. Captivating performances, amazing fashion and beautiful faces. We can't wait til next year!
