Radio Afro-Australia Awards nomination for Demarco & Samini Jamaican/African collab 'Summer Party'

Dancehall artiste Demarco
Aimed at recognizing music of an African origin, considering it's growing popularity in the Australian Diaspora, Radio Afro-Australia Awards is hosted by the popular broadcasting media house, Radio Afro Australia. According to a release from his camp, this would have been the first-ever nomination of it's kind for Reggae/Dancehall artiste Demarco in Australia. The song "Summer Party" featuring Ghanian artist Samini is considered among the "Best African Song of the Year" 2013.

The release also stated that Radio Afro is instrumental in Demarco's successful 'I Love My Life' eight (8) city tour in Australia last summer. 

Humbled by the nomination, Demarco said, "This is a great way to start the New Year, and to get a nomination only months after your first tour of that country is definitely an accomplishment.  I would like to thank my hardworking team and the people of Australia for this one."
