Fresh off the success of his Grammy nomination for his debut album Chronology, and sold-out shows for his Caribbean tour, reggae singer Chronixx has been recognised with the Prime Minister's youth award in the area of arts and culture.

Chronixx, was among 24 young people who received awards in eleven categories on Wednesday in a ceremony held at Jamaica House. An additional fifty-five youth were honoured for their commendable work in youth service as part of the Jamaica 55 celebrations.

Chevoy “Kool Ravers” Grant of the Ravers Clavers dance squad was also one of the evening's winners in the same category as Chronixx as well as film-maker Aisha Porter-Christie.

Introduced in 1998, the Prime Minister's National Youth Awards for Excellence was conceptualised to recognise young Jamaicans between the ages of 15 and 29 who have excelled and contributed to national development in various areas. Since its inception, 189 awards have been conferred. This year's ceremony marks the culmination of the annual Youth Month celebrations, themed 'Substance Over Hype', a popular line from Chronixx's hit track Likes.
