If you had asked Ammoye 2 years ago what her musical life would look like in 2011, she wouldn’t have been able to give you an answer. Today, she smiles humbly as the news continues to sink in that she is the 2011-2012 Female Artist of the Year.
The honor comes from the recently held Achievement Awards for Reggae music which took place in Toronto on Saturday June 4th, 2011. “I am so happy,” said Ammoye. “I’m happy that we were able to achieve this. We did it as a team so this award is for all of us!”
Winning the award comes as a pre-curser to Ammoye’s busy schedule. Her latest studio projects which are produced by Danny Maestro, Kemar ‘Flava’ McGregor and Tony Anthony, sees the singer give fans more one drop Reggae. The artist also has a busy performance schedule as she takes the stage on three of Canada’s most high profile events being Jamaica Day – Toronto, Jambana and the Montreal Reggae Festival. She also leaves for Serbia’s Exit Festival where she will perform for 150,000 fans over three days. It doesn’t stop there!
Ammoye will be releasing an EP in September called ‘Bad Gyal’ which is being executive produced by Dubmatix. The EP will be the prelude to her album which is scheduled to be released in 2012, and builds on the heels of the success of her album ‘Haffi Win’ which was produced by Ottawa’s Rise Ashen for the Balanced Records label.
