Machel Montano has been nominated for a Soul Train award, his third such nomination. He was first nominated in 2011.

Montano has been nominated for Best International Performance for his Road March and Power Soca winning song, Ministry of Road.

He has been nominated in the category alongside African music producer Davido (Aye), Shaggy featuring NeYo (You Girl), Nico and Vinz (AM I Wrong) and Sam Smith (Stay With Me).

Last year Montano faced competition in the same category from fellow Soca artiste Bunji Garlin who eventually won with his monster hit Differentology.

The 2014 Soul Train Awards will take place in Las Vegas on Friday, November 7th. The awards will be aired on Centric and BET on Sunday, November 30.

Big Up Machel Montano.
