The Copyright Music Organisation of Trinidad and Tobago has nominated Kubiyashi for TWO awards, Song of the Year for Cloud 9 by Trini, artiste Lyrikal and Groovy Soca of the Year for the same song, Cloud 9.

The COTT annual music Awards are designed to pay tribute to members who are behind the creation of popular Caribbean music, and are often overshadowed by their artistes spotlight. The criteria for nomination of this award is based on performance and recording of the nominated songs written by the respective nominees according to broadcast logs, live performances, recordings & other data provided to COTT for the year.

Kubiyashi expressed that he is both surprised and humbled by the nominations and stated that his pride lay in the fact that his work on the project was more of a Vincy effort, as Vocalist Kahailia Beach and guitarist Zan George also contributed to the project. He also expressed thanks to Lyrikal for doing justice to the song.
