|*LAST YEAR's winner was RICHIE & GRACIA "A L'ANVERS"!
*PART 1 is a short resume from us about what went down
*PART 2 shows you the number of votes + WHO voted for them on the 50 Member panel.
*PART 3 are some of the QUOTES from members of our panel FOR THAT CATEGORY.
The award goes to NU LOOK's "NOTRE HISTOIRE"
*SURPRISE. This category was NOT as easy as many people expected. TINA/RICHARD CAVE's song "A Tes Cotes" gave NU LOOK a scare all the way down to the wire, but at the end, "NOTRE HISTOIRE" from Nu Look prevailed. It was close just like last year when Djakout's "Jistis" narrowly lost to "A Lanvers". Nevertheless, Congrats are in order to NU LOOK's "Notre Histoire" as 2008's Kompa Magazine's SONG OF THE YEAR winner.
NOTE: MICKAEL GUIRAND tried to vote for "A Tes Cotes", but that was not allowed because it was a song composed and performed by a CARIMI member. As a matter of fact, the 3 CARIMI members (Mickael, Richard Cave, and Alex Thebaud) all voted for NU LOOK's "Notre Histoire". Even had they NOT voted for the song, the Richard Cave/Tina song would still have fallen two votes short of Nu Look's "Notre Histoire". IT WAS CLOSE, but NU LOOK's "NOTRE HISTOIRE" stands at the top of the mountain.

*QUOTES (Some Quotes from our panel members)
+ ROBERTO MARTINO: "Notre Histoire. This song was like the national anthem in Haiti this past summer, even little kids were singing it."
+ TI MICHEL TROPIDISC: "Notre Histoire". Tout cote ou pase mizik sa ap menen"
+ JEFF POLICARD: "Song of the year: Richard Cave/Tina- A tes cote. People just go crazy over that song. Made a huge impact EVERYWHERE!"
+ MICKY WALKER of Rafrechi: "MIZIK MIZIK "Paradi Nan Lanfer"- The strong message here makes this song deserving of this award."
+ RICHIE: "Tough one but since i can't vote for Zenglen, i'll go with NU-Look. Nice song but "o papa Bondye" is my favorite."
+ TI EDDY VIAU: ""Notre Histoire"....alot of radio playtime an the when is performed live everyone is singing along..."
+ SANDERS of Harmonik: "Song of the year (Richard Cave A tes cotes) This song made a lot of noise everywhere and it has a different sound and taste richard did an excellent job"
+ NARAH TIMMER of DBON Productions: "ZENGLEN "Jere Sexy A"
In my opinion, this song just simply put Zenglen back on the map...AGAIN. This became a very popular song which eventually became the HMI household slogan..."jere sexy ou"."
+ RESHKA of FOS BARON: "I'll go with "Notre Histoire" a lot of people can relate to it lol"
+ JEAN MAX VALCOURT of DOLA: "Richard Cave/Tina “a tes cotes”…This is one great duet. The arrangement just fits the song, and both singers did an outstanding job."
+ ICON GRAPHICS: "NU LOOK "Notre Histoire"- Just beautiful, real story, everyone can relate, and you can dance to it and really get into the words and feelings it invokes. The melody reminds me of a beautiful french song. Will be relevant 50 years from now and beyond."
+ NANDY GEORGES of Konparezon: "RICHARD CAVE/TINA "A Tes Cotes" First choice for the text and story line, the video was on point and really re-inforce the story line, you dont have to listen twice to know what they were talking about!"
+ HIP MAGAZINE: "RICHARD CAVE/TINA "A Tes Cotes"
All of the songs in this category made a statement in some way, but what makes À Tes Côtés stand out for me is the fact that it came out earlier than most of these songs and stayed popular for a long time. People of different age groups and music tastes took a liking to the song and they have an edge over the competition by providing a well-made video to further push the song."
+ KAMIKAZ: "RICHARD CAVE/TINA "A Tes Cotes": it's different, nice duo, and very catchy song."
