Wyre has been nominated in the same category as industry heavyweights such as Jay Z, Kanye West, Eminem, 2Face Idibia and Chameleon. Speaking to the Star, Wyre said that the support he is getting from Kenyans online is overwhelming.
“I don’t know how they found out about my music but I learnt about the nomination when Chef Ali Mandhry tweeted me saying he had already voted. Since then, everyone has voted and some have sent me screen shots. It is amazing and it means a lot to me that Kenyans are voting. For the longest time we have been complaining about how no one votes but now, that is something of the past. For the last two years I have seen the power of Kenyans online especially when I was nominated for the IRAWMA.”
Wyre worn the best new entertainer award in the International Reggae And World Music Awards beating Jamaican Dancehall heavyweight Tommy Lee Sparta.
