The International Reggae and World Music Award is an annual event that celebrates the accomplishments of artists in the reggae and world music industry. This year’s edition will be held virtually on March 27, 2023, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The award ceremony brings together musicians from all over the world, and it is a huge honor for any artist to be nominated for an award.

Star Zee is a multi-award-winning Sierra Leonean Hip-Hop and Dancehall queen.

Raised in Freetown, ” Queen Kong” alias Star Zee has lyrically demonstrated why she is Sierra Leone’s biggest Dancehall crooner; a lyrically lethal female singjay who can rival her male counterparts boot-to-boot on the riddim.

She was initially introduced to the music industry at the age of 14 when she joined Stress Inc Records.

Star Zee began her career as a member of Ladies Day Out, a female-only band (L.D.O), and went solo in 2003, never looking back. “Focus On Africa” was published by the group (L.D.O) in December 1998. Star Zee’s contributions to the record earned her widespread acclaim in Sierra Leone’s music business.

Star Zee has been able to enter a field dominated by males since the beginning of her solo career and maintain her position. She has performed alongside various musicians from her homeland and abroad, including a collaboration with Nigerian icon Patoranking, in the United Kingdom and Australia. She won an award for “Best Work of the Year” for her collaboration with renowned dancehall heavyweight Stonebwoy.
