The fifth Image Entertainment Distinction (IED) Awards was held recently The Kings Theater in New York, where entertainers who have contributed to Image, Entertainment and Humanity were honoured.

The event, hosted by International artist, Shaggy, saw the “No Worries” artist taking home the “Female Artist of the Year 2017” award and being honoured for her work in entertainment and her contribution towards women empowerment.

“It was a joy to bring home this award simply because music is such a major part of my life, and it serves as a medium through which I teach, empower, and help others grow overall. I have always been an advocate for female power. I seek to empower males as well, but women are oftentimes taken advantage of, and as a strong woman, the least I can do is share that strength,” The “First Lady of Dancehall” said.
