The artiste's hard work has not been in vain as he continues to garner much recognition and respect from both colleagues in the industry and fans worldwide.

The two categories are the 'Bob Marley Award for Entertainer of the Year' and the 'Most Cultural/Educational Entertainer'.
"It is an honor to be nominated in two prestigious categories alongside some of the icons in the business. When creating music, I tend to sing for the love of it and the people, so when someone or an organization recognize me for my work, it is a great accomplishment" says I-Octane.
