International dancehall/soca artiste Roger Cassup, more popularly known as Razor B, is humbled to have his contribution to music and entrepreneurship recognised by the Durham Caribbean Festival organisation based in Ajax, Canada.
The organisation, celebrating its ninth year of appreciating Caribbean and multicultural diversity and synergy throughout Canada, had a week-long set of annual activities, including the coveted awards ceremony.
This event is where Razor B accepted his award for International Reggae Artiste and Entrepreneur of the Year 2019.
The successful recording artiste has over the years been a hardworking entrepreneur as well, both in Canada and Jamaica.
With the opening of the successful Cassups Kitchen family restaurant in Jamaica late last year, the Durham Caribbean Festival committee decided it was time to honour the recording artiste and businessman this year.
Razor B has expressed that this award means a lot to him because it recognises not just his musical contribution, but the hard work of being a Caribbean business owner and for that he is humbled and grateful. Since he migrated to Canada in 1993, Razor B has worn many hats, including event promoter, truck driver, health and fitness mentor, songwriter, music producer and certified chef.
The artiste has found a way to balance a successful music career with family life and operating businesses in both Canada and Jamaica.
Razor B also performed on Saturday night at the multicultural Appreciation Day event, also in the city. He is now set to release a few new music projects this year before completing his first studio album this fall.
