Christian Hip-Hop Artist B-Luv who received the most nominations (5) given to any artist since its inception walked away with 3 Gospel Blue MIC Awards: Best Packaging, Video of the Year, and Hip-Hop Artist of the Year.
“I am thankful and overwhelmed to be a recipient at this year’s Blue MIC Awards. As an independent artist it’s rare to be heard let alone acknowledged for a body of work. It’s in moments like these where I realize there is someone always listening. You may never reach the world with your gift but never forget the moments where you made an impact to the people who are. It’s an honor to recognized by the IGAA and the Blue MIC Awards” . ~ B-Luv
