*QUOTES (Some Quotes from our panel members)
+ PAPA JUBE: "I will give that one to "SHABBA". Many people underestimated Shabba's potential, and he took everyone by surprise, his album is being played on rotation everywhere i go, and I love the entire album."
+ FABRICE ROUZIER: "Misty Jean. You will regain a sense of hope by attending one of her shows. I was in attendance at one she did here @ Canne à Sucre. She does not only look stunning on and off stage , she also is one of the top vocalists in the HMI."
+ ROBERTO MARTINO: "I'll go with Nickenson Prudhomme.
He is the engine behind Harmonik and hasmade a lot of sacrifices to put Harmonik where they are today! DWET CELESTE LA BON BAGAY!"
+RICHIE: "Shabba. He worked and now should come the reward."
+REGINALD FOSBARON Festival: "I will go with Nicky on this one. He deserve it for all his hard work in the HMI not just Harmonik"
+ MIA LOPEZ: "Hands down Pat, SHABBA. We were waiting for his album, and behind the scenes Shabba is one of the hardest working artists I have met. He will get off the stage in and boom he’ll be letting people know his album is out and making sure they get their copy. Appearing on everyone’s projects and making sure the top dogs got on his album, he is making his identity clear as Shabba and not just as Shabba Djakout."
+ ELIE LAPOINTE: "That one goes straight to Pipo Stanis".
+ MICKEY WALKER (Rafrechi): "This has to go to Nickenson (b)!!! What Harmonik has accomplished this year would be very difficult to redo by any standard in any music industry. The band just keeps getting better with a great new drummer, sick grooves and so on. Kembe la Nicky, wap fe maleurrrr as a maestro."
