International Dancehall Soca artiste Roger Cassup, known in entertainment circles as Razor B, is humbled to have his contribution to music and entrepreneurship recognized by the Durham Caribbean Festival organization based in Ajax Canada.
The Organization, celebrating its ninth year of appreciating the Caribbean and multi-cultural diversity and synergy throughout Canada, has a week-long set of annual activities including the coveted award ceremony. This event is where Razor B will be accepting his award for ‘International Reggae Artist 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.
“I’ve received multiple awards over the years since I started my musical career but this Durham Caribbean Festival award means a lot to me because it recognizes not just my musical contribution but the hard work of being a Caribbean business owner, for that I’m humbled and grateful,” Razor shared
Since he migrated to Canada in 1993, Razor B has worn many hats including; Event Promoter, Truck Driver, Health and Fitness Mentor, Song Writer, 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.
The Durham Caribbean Festival award for International Reggae Artist and Entrepreneur will be presented to Razor B this Thursday during an invitation-only awards banquet in Ajax Canada.
The artiste will also be performing on Saturday night at the Multicultural Appreciation day event also in the city. Razor B is also set to release a few new music projects this year before completing his first studio album this fall.
