During the Hamper donation in Grenada last Friday, Brother B's management presented him with his certificate for his 2012 nomination for his album 'Carnival Fever' from the NAACP image awards in Hollywood. Brother B who's touring schedule overseas is pre booked six months in advanced, was unavailable to attend this years event.  He was booked mid 2011 for an event in London at the same date as the awards in Hollywood. Brother B who didn't want to let fans down, turned up to the event in London and his management sent an assistant to attend the event in Hollywood.

Brother B created history with his nomination at the NAACP image awards earlier in 2012. This second nomination creates history for Soca Music yet again as this is the first time a Soca artiste has been nominated twice in Hollywood. No other artist has been nominated in Hollywood previously. This shows that Soca Music has the potential to reach higher heights.
