The event was pushed back this year, due to the pandemic.

Among the list of honorees are recording artistes, sound system operators, engineers, songwriters and more.

JARIA’s Lifetime Achievement Award will go to singer and songwriter Owen Gray.

Meanwhile, Harold Butler will be awarded for his contribution to the reggae industry as a songwriter.
