2012 | Rap Recording of the Year | Kardinal Offishall | | The JUNO Awards

Kardinal Offishall’s moniker of “Celebrity Face” is as appropriate as it is catchy. His unique twist of hip-hop is loved internationally due to his high-energy stage performances and charismatic persona, making him both incredibly original and world renowned. Kardi first created his worldwide buzz through incredible rhymes carefully laced with patois, which was fresh to the world’s music scene. Releasing classic singles such as “Bakardi Slang”, “Ol Time Killin” and “Maxine”, rap and dancehall fans caught on - but he had yet to break through to the mainstream audience in the U.S.A. In 2008, Kardi joined forces with Akon and his Kon Live Music/Interscope imprint. This musical marriage gave birth to millions of songs sold and chart topping singles around the world including “Numba One” and of course the smash hit “Dangerous” featuring Akon. Kardinal Offishall is a four-time JUNO Award winner, multiple ASCAP award winner and Socan award winner. He also holds four MMVA’s under his belt, along with epic MMVA performances. Kardinal is one of the hardest working men in the business and never stops working to perfect his craft as an artist, performer, entertainer, and businessman.
