Ted­dyson John Wins Praise from Flow

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Flow Am­bas­sador Ted­dyson John has come in for high praise from his spon­sor fol­low­ing his suc­cess in cap­tur­ing the Best Ca­lypso/Soca En­ter­tainer ti­tle for 2016 at the In­ter­na­tional Reg­gae and World Mu­sic Awards.

John is the first Saint Lu­cian ever to be nom­i­nated for the In­ter­na­tional Reg­gae and World Mu­sic Awards which were held Oc­to­ber 2 at the Coral Spring Cen­ter for the Arts in South Florida.

“The news of Ted­dyson win­ning this pres­ti­gious award did not come as a sur­prise to us,” said Flow St. Lu­cia Mar­ket­ing & Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Ex­ec­u­tive, Sher­ma­lyn Si­donie-John. “Over the years he has proven be­yond doubt that he is an in­cred­i­bly tal­ented artiste who puts his heart into his work and works hard to achieve his dreams. Through it all, he has re­mained hum­ble, de­spite all of his suc­cesses and tri­umphs. Flow is ex­tremely proud to be his spon­sor.”

Pop­u­larly known as TJ, John is a for­mer Groovy Soca Monarch whose mu­sic took lo­cal soca fans by storm, in­clud­ing his smash hits ‘Land of Wine’ and ‘Push Back’. He has fea­tured on a num­ber of al­bums, in­clud­ing the pop­u­lar ‘Par­adise Rid­dim’ along­side T&T’s Machel Mon­tano, Na­dia Bat­son, Ker­win Dubois and Farmer Nappy.

He is also a main­stay of the Saint Lu­cia Jazz & Arts Fes­ti­val and has per­formed through­out the Caribbean, as well as in the US, Canada and the UK.

Flow has been stead­fastly pro­vid­ing John with all the sup­port he needs to help him fur­ther his ca­reer and broaden his ex­po­sure by bring­ing his mu­sic to an in­ter­na­tional au­di­ence.

“We feel ex­tremely hon­oured to have Ted­dyson as our brand am­bas­sador. For us this reaf­firms our con­tin­u­ing com­mit­ment to the de­vel­op­ment of Saint Lu­cia’s artistes. Our model of spon­sor­ship places the em­pha­sis on sup­port­ing their long-term ca­reer de­vel­op­ment, and puts their growth, fi­nan­cial sta­bil­ity and se­cu­rity first,” said Si­donie-John.
