Buggy off to Denmark
Multiple Barbados Music Awards (BMA) winner Buggy (real name Ryan Chase) is heading to Copenhagen, Denmark tomorrow as part of a Caribbean Export Development Agency contingent to the World Music Expo.
The Expo is scheduled to last from October 26 to 31, and during that time the Bajan songwriter will be showcasing his music to the European market.
While he’s there, he will also make good on an invitation to perform at the We Remember Natasja concert in Pumpehuset, Copenhagen, on October 29 in dedication of that country’s fallen reggae artist Natasja, who died in a car accident in Jamaica in 2007.
Buggy, Barbados’ Reggae Artist of the Year for 2011, has been collecting BMA awards since 2007. He claimed two that year – Best Reggae Artiste and Best Reggae Single – and has three more under his belt.
They are Reggae Artist Of The Year, Song Of The Year (Just A Man), Songwriter Of The Year, and Best Male Entertainer Of The Year.
His Fully Loaded Band also copped an award for Band Of The Year.
Buggy has begun work on his second album which will be aptly named Just A Man which will also feature work with Grammy Award-winning Steel Pulse producer Jimmy Haynes, and which has also birthed Buggy’s latest release entitled Love Remains The Same by Hawaiian label Rumble Rock Recordz. (MH/PR)
