Vybz Kartel was snubbed by this year’s Your View Awards, formerly known as Youth View Awards and we are finally getting to know the real reason why.

The nominees were announced on Thursday at the official launch of the 2018 YVA’s at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel and the incarcerated Dancehall superstar’s name was noticeably absent. The “Fever” deejay’s inability to meet the event’s new qualifying criteria, has been given as the reason for the prolific artist’s non-appearance on the list of nominees.

According to organizers, all nominees, among other rules, must be able to perform live at the awards show.
