When the story broke that a Jamaican in Florida had been nominated for the "Best Female" award in a British competition, many Jamaicans in the United States beamed with pride.
Radio stations like HOT 102 in Jamaica, WRFG Radio in Atlanta, Hot 105FM in South Florida, along with other media houses with Caribbean programming, suddenly made the announcement part of their news content.
Camille Kaye, a graduate of Immaculate Conception High School in Jamaica, who currently resides in South Florida, has been nominated for "Best Female Artist" for 2011 in Britain's Official Mixtape Awards (OMA). According to the OMA's website, the nominees are chosen from a pool of British artists. Kaye's "Bad nuh..." mixtape was, however, apparently so popular in the United Kingdom it got nominated.
