Machel Montano is undeniably having one of the biggest years of his career. He walked away with three awards, including the Bob Marley Entertainer of the Year Award. This puts him in league with top reggae winners Gramps Morgan with three and Queen Ifrika with four awards. With his usually energetic self he brought the crowd to their feet as they sang and danced along with him. He was also the exclusive soca act at this year's 'Best of the Best' concert, hosted by P Diddy on Memorial Day weekend in Miami.
