BMA’s baton passed on

The Barbados Music Awards is now under new ownership. Less than 24 hours after the curtain came down on the 11th annual award show, former producer Ronnie Morris announced that the baton had now been passed on.

He revealed that the decision was finalized just five days before the staging of this year’s event.

Nadurbiz Entertainment Inc. will now be the executive producers of the show. Morris said the decision was made to ensure the future
of the awards was secure.

“It was time to guarantee the future of the BMAs. When I conceptualized and launched the event, the idea was always that it was established to highlight the talent of Barbadian artistes. The event and its brand must continue to be a part of Barbados’ strategy to reach the global music platform, and my intention was always for the event to have a galvanized succession plan,” Morris said in a statement released on Sunday night.

He said he looked forward to working with Nadurbiz Entertainment.

“I am looking forward to the future, as Nadurbiz Entertainment’s involvement will help to steer the event on the path towards maximizing its potential,” Morris added.

Nadurbiz Entertainment is headed by Anthony Nadur, who has been involved in the music business for close to a decade. He is a director of COSCAP, and has invested in building a catalogue of recordings through serving as executive producer for dozens of releases over
the years.

Morris will continue on in a creative and consultative role for years to come.

    I am so proud of you Ronnie. Seeing such talent at such a young age and creating a truly recognized brand for Barbados that can compete at the international level is really commendable. I once took some of my top clients to one of the shows using a number of limousines and it was very exciting for us. Keep putting your touch on life. It would love you for it. GOD BLESS.
