Grenadian soca superstar Mr Killa (Hollice Mapp) has been adjudged the winner of the Best Reggae and Dancehall category at the African Muzik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA). In his category, the singer was competing with contenders such as Spice, Shenseea, Steff London, Popcaan and Alkaline.
Commenting on his win, Mr Killa had this to say: “I am emotional being here tonight, because so much people said that I wouldn’t make it. But I want to thank the Almighty Father, I want to thank my mother and my friends, fans and family”.
Mapp said he hopes that this win will also pave the way for his fellow soca musicians to receive the international recognition they deserve. He thrilled the audience with his music and eccentric dance at the ceremony, which took place on Saturday 19 November at Gilley’s in Dallas, Texas.
