*QUOTES (Some Quotes from our panel members)
+ RICHIE Zenglen: "Arly. At a time where people started to doubt the band, especially when some of the key players had left, he came back stronger. Chapo ti-ason!"
+ FABRICE ROUZIER: "2008 is Arly's year hands down."
+ ALAN CAVE: "SI SE POU MWEN FOK TOU DE CHANTE LOOK LA TA
ATIS DE L'ANNEE..CHAPO BA POU NEG YO.....MIN KOM FOM VOTE POU YOUN..ARLY IS THE MAN."
+ JUBE: "ARLY LARIVIERE: WITHOUT A DOUBT"
+ ROBERTO MARTINO: "I think This is Arly's year. He Worked very hard on the latest Nu Look release and his hard work paid off!"
+ TI MICHEL TROPIDISC: "Arly. He delivered for his group with this much needed new cd."
+ SANDERS HARMONIK: " Arly Larivierre. His hits are just amazing and I wonder where he gets them from."
+ RESHKA FOS BARON: "Arly Lariviere got this one. His band had a great CD and his usual love songs were instant hits. He deserves it this year. Great Job Mr. Lariviere."
+ JEFF POLICARD: "Arly Lariviere. Still doing a great job of making hit after hit."
+ KAMIKAZ: "Arly has 3 hits in one album where there are some bands that are still looking for one."
+ TI EDDY VIAU VICE: "ARLY LARIVIERE has produced a hit cd as well as managed a band on a off stage...."
+ NARAH TIMMER of DBON PRODUCTIONS: "ARLY LARIVIERE. This is definitely the toughest category. In terms of artistic impact in both studio work and live performances, I would have to say Arly Lariviere. He has had a superb year as a hit maker/composer as well as very successful tours as maestro of Nu Look."
+ MIA LOPEZ: "GAZZMAN has continued to shine over the years and through several ups and downs, negative press and unfavorable situations he continues to prove to us that he is focused on music. These are a few of the qualities needed to be considered as Artist of the Year."
+ JEAN MAX VALCOURT: "RICHIE…this is one Haitian musician with more accomplishment in this industry. A role model in terms of leadership, patience for keeping up with his group for almost 2 decades, and for his community services back home."
+ MICKY WALKER of Rafrechi: "ANSYTO MERCIER: I would normally choose Arly here, but the BEST keyboard player in the history of Kompa deserves this title. Not to sound like a jerk, but before he took over as maestro, Kreyol la didn't sound too great. He made these guys really mature and now when you hear them live you know they mean business."
+ DJ SUPERDUKE: "RICHARD CAVE. I know this will not going to be a popular choice but I value artist that thrives to crossover and become a face representing our music to the international market. Richard Cave did just that with TINA. Also they prove they can have a successful Carnival."
