Spice honoured by New York City Council

This week, so-called 'Queen of Dancehall' Spice became the first Jamaican to be honoured by the New York City Council's Black, Latino and Asian Caucus and the Power and Music Committee.

She was honoured with the International Music Ambassador Award for her outstanding achievements in music. 

Spice shared the moment with fans on social media, where she expressed gratitude to the committee, while driving home her journey from 'Homeless to Greatness'.

The honourees included the Reverend Al Sharpton, legendary singer Patti LaBelle, hip hop icons Doug E. Fresh, Fat Joe, Busta Rhymes, Ja Rule, and Roxanne Shante.

Acclaimed video director Benny Boom was among the honourees.

Earlier this year, the Go Down Deh deejay was honoured at TV One's Black Women in Media Awards.

The committee honors women of colour who have made exceptional contributions to communications, media, entertainment, literature, publishing, TV, and film.
