“These entertainers must be honored for their contribution to our music reaching a worldwide audience. Every year we honor stalwarts in music industry,” Campbell told Jamaica Observer.

This year marks the event’s 36th anniversary.

Campbell explained Trinidad and Tobago’s Lord Creator’s inclusion.

“He came to Jamaica in ‘60’s and has made it home since then. He resides in Hanover and, at 82 years old, he said if he can’t make it, he will speak to us at the event on the phone. He played an import role to Jamaica’s music industry with songs like Don’t Stay Out Too Late, Kingston Town and Evening News,” said Campbell.
