WESTMORELAND deejay Whisky Baggio says his nomination for Best Male Artiste of the Year in the West Awards is reward for persistence.

Known for songs such as Bomber and When The Good A Go Come, Whisky Baggio is a previous winner of the category. This time around, he is nominated along with Bookie, J Yunng, Prince Pin and

Justice Merchant.

"I feel great about the nomination because it's a west thing and the nomination means that people are seeing my work. I've been in the game for a while, I started deejaying from primary school, I have never stopped. So it's really nice to see that my work is being recognised," said Whisky Baggio.

He believes the West Awards are good for Westmoreland, as it gives the parish's leisure industry critical exposure.

Whisky Baggio is currently promoting two new music videos: None A Dem Nuh Badda Than Jah and The Pressure Is On.

The West Awards' second staging is slated for April 6 at Kokonut Grooves in Savanna-la-Mar. Awards will be handed out in over 12 categories including Artiste of the Year (Male), Artiste of the Year (Female), Radio Station of the Year, Promoter of the Year, Radio Personality of the Year, Designer of the Year, Selector of the Year, Studio of the Year and Party of the Year.
