    This is amazing! This young Bermudian has been nominated again for an award (he won the first one last year) and there doesn’t seem to be any praise for him at all?! What is wrong with this picture, Bermuda? We wonder why our youth are not achieving? We do not support or celebrate their success!!

    I am proud of this young man and I am proud to say he is a Bermudian. We need to support him and other local artists.

    I Agree with Support Local Talent 100%. So many artist are doing so many great things locally and internationally but the support is so minimal that its hard to rejoice or even mention what we are doing.
    Good Job Kidd Clazzic. Keep up the good work.
    Hope it doesn’t take till you and other local artist walk on a stage getting a grammy for our island to support.
