Thursday July 26 2018
Reeny has captured much attention and high praise from within the music industry, having an already long list of awards and accolades to her credit. She was first recognized in 2011 with the Portia White Award for Excellence in Vocal Performance, along with a scholarship from the Nova Scotia Talent Trust for her outstanding musical attributes. Reeny was selected as Casino Nova Scotia’s Artist In Residence in 2015 and attended the Gordie Sampson Songcamp the same year. Reeny has received three African Nova Scotia Music Awards for Up and Coming Artist (2011), Rising Star (2012), and Artist of the Year (2015). In 2017 and 2016, she won Music Nova Scotia’s African Canadian Artist of the Year award.
With the upcoming release of her first single ‘Good Girl Swag’ in February 2018, and her first full-length album to follow, Reeny is poised and ready to take her career to the next level. Looking back on her successes and forward on what’s to come, it’s exciting to think for Reeny, this is only the beginning.
