  International radio personality ZJ Liquid grabbed the coveted International Dancehall Selector of the Year at the fourth annual South Florida Reggae and Dancehall Awards in the United States recently.  

The popular selector, whose real name is Michael Brissett, received the award after performing a number of his hit songs at the awards show such as the international dancehall number one hit, Wifey Walk Out on the One Day riddim. ZIP FM also won the award for Best Radio Station.

Recently, Liquid has been ratcheting up his international presence with gigs all over the world. He, along with reggae artiste Protoje, recently returned from Dubai in the United Arab Emirates where Liquid played music on the major urban station, Radio 1.


“I am the first disc jockey from here to go over there and spin on that station, it was a great privilege and a wonderful experience,” he said.


While in Dubai, ZJ Liquid was able to sample the unique cuisine, and bustling night-life of the cosmopolitan city.  


“We did the whole tourist thing in Dubai, we visited mosques and saw the sights, Dubai is a beautiful city,” ZJ Liquid, who has amassed an impressive 30,000 followers on Twitter, said.


Plaudits and applause and Twitter fawning aside,  Liquid is really proud of  being able to maintain the love and support of his fan base in Jamaica. In April, he was reinstated at ZIP FM in his regular time slot after a four month suspension from live radio. He thanked his legion of fans for sticking with him through his various problems.


“The fans can get frustrated and drift from you especially with all the drama and disappointments I have been through recently, but they stuck with me, and for that I am eternally grateful,” he said.


He also thanked Team Liquid, Zip 103 FM and the Broadcasting Commission for giving him another opportunity to showcase his talent.

The selector-turned-artiste has a new hit song called ‘Who ah Di Fada’ on the Wet Up riddim which has been blowing up all over FM radio and wowing dancehall fans at events in the Corporate Area. 


"We're pushing things to the next level, look out for more dancehall hits and more videos this year, the ting look bright, not even a teaspoon of darkness, not even a speck of dirt," he said.
