Original ‘Dancehall Queen’ Carlene awarded for outstanding contribution to Dancehall


As of late, Jamaica’s first ‘Dancehall Queen’, Carlene Smith was granted for extraordinary commitment to the Dancehall business at the first yearly “Rulers of Reggae Island Honorary Ceremonies” on Sunday at the Courtleigh assembly room in Kingston.

Carlene alongside eight other Jamaican ladies were perceived for their masterful endeavors in their particular enterprises

Carlene had this to say in the wake of getting the video, “I am elated and respected to be chosen among these exceptional and awesome ladies, including the (Entertainment and Culture) Minister Olivia “Babsy” Grange, Sister Nancy, an amazing dancehall artiste, and Audrey “Goodas” Farquharson, dancehall form creator.”

She then quickly expressed, “This privileged occasion is an incredible activity for the Dancehall/Reggae Industry in Jamaica, particularly being that this industry is a male-ruled space… this will highlight the inventiveness and diligent work of ladies in the performing expressions field who are not sufficiently perceived for their work.”

Carlene’s rose to fame started with her more well known video lady gigs, most essential was her accomplishment in Chaka Demus and Pliers’ Murder She Wrote and Byron Lee and The Dragonaires’.
