Loop hosts 1st Jabbie Awards, Patrice Roberts wins Carnival 2018

LoopTT hosted its first annual Jabbie Awards, our overview of everything that went down this Carnival season, and presented our picks for who won this season, from best pavement march, best collab, who got a little too salty, and even which artist hit us a ghost this season. 

It also allowed us to revisit some of the major happenings (and they were many) over the short, but intense season. In the end, we declared Patrice Roberts as the ultimate winner of Carnival 2018. From her body of music, collaborations, social media game, and fashion, even though she may not have won Road March, there's no debate that this year was hers. 

Check out the full list of winners below. If you want to check out the full video, visit our Loop Facebook page
