Ketch Up - Popcaan cops MOBO

Dancehall artiste Popcaan is the proud winner of the 2015 MOBO Award for Best Reggae Act. Nominated among strong contenders such as last year's winner Stylo G, UK/US Billboard chart-topper Omi and two of Jamaica's roots-Reggae trendsetters, Chronixx and Protoje, the Dancehall artiste came out on top, ater two nominations for this award. He was nominated for the first time in 2014.

Known for trendsetting dancehall hits 'Clarks' ft. Vybz Kartel and "Only Man She Want" which entered Billboard Hot 100 charts, Popcaan's edge might have been bolstered by recent collaborations with English producer, remix artiste and DJ, Jamie XX and hip-hop artiste Young Thug on a single called "There's Gonna Be Good Times" this year as well as British Reggae and pop singer, Melissa Steel's single, "Kisses" which peaked at No. 10 on the UK Top 10 charts last year.
