Snow’s reaction to being nominated three times in the Latin AMA’s. Nominations are: ‘Favourite Song’, ‘Song of the Year’ and ‘Favourite Crossover Artist’.
Bless and Lemme of The Moment of Truth Podcast sit down with Canadian reggae icon Snow. 27 years after his smash hit informer he returns to the game with over 1 billion views and a certified diamond single for his collaboration with Daddy Yankee, Con Calma.
Canadian singer, Snow, is not a man who is easily influenced by the noise. His words and actions delineate that he does what he wants to do, when he wants to do it. Interestingly, when it comes to his love affair with reggae and dancehall music, he makes it clear that Jamaicans call the shots.
