Vendetta fans were highly critical of the award show calling it a Gaza show. Him in a league by himself and no other artist even come close to his level. This further fuel the beef between the two deejays with Kartel’s rep accusing the YVA of being bought out by the Vendetta deejay. Vybz Kartel thinks that the recent snub from the YVA awards is further proof that the system is trying to silence his music. A rep for the deejay told Dancehall HipHop that he is not angry but still sees it as another attempt to silence his voice. The fans know that Kartel is the biggest and baddest artist in the history of dancehall. Last year the YVA was dominated by Vybz Kartel despite him getting fewer nominations than his counterpart Alkaline. “You can’t have an award show where artists can buy them way into and how can that be better than artist paying disc jockeys to play their music,” his rep told us. So what is dancehall award show without Vybz Kartel?”
Kartel’s biggest rival, Alkaline, leads the list of nominees this year with seven nods. The “Mhm Hm” deejay did not receive a single nomination at this year’s Your View Awards, former Youth View, because of some rules changes. “Thankfully we are living in an age where the fans can go online and get the music directly from artists so we don’t have to go through radio stations or major labels.

Vybz Kartel Gets Snubbed From This Year’s YVA Awards The YVA says they will not nominate any artist who can’t perform at the event which automatically disqualifies Kartel because of his incarceration. “It’s not our show so we can’t vex if they don’t nominate us (Vybz Kartel), but this is more clear evidence of a plot to silence Worl’Boss and stifle his music,” his rep said. So perhaps this is the YVA’s attempt to appease those fans.
