Headlined by multi-million-selling music legend El Debarge, the expanded and refined annual Barbados Music Awards, dubbed the Barbados Music, Fashion and Film Awards, will take place at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre on two nights – Saturday, January 11 and Sunday, January 12.
With a mega-lineup on each night, the event kicks off with night one (fashion and film) where luminaries including Marietta Carter-Narcisse, Marcia and Dave Weekes, the late Simon Foster and others will be recognized for their stellar achievements.
The first night will also feature 60 models, mainly Barbadian, with guest models from Jamaica, the United Kingdom, St Vincent and Guyana.
