Dwane, born Dwane Husbands, has gained recognition at the highest levels of the music industry including impressing executives at Def Jam following his performance at the 2006 Barbados Music Awards (BMAs). This impressive performance led to his recording with another home-grown superstar, Def Jam recording artist Rihanna, on her multi-platinum sophomore album A Girl like Me.
After recording “Dem Haters” with global star Rihanna, Dwane Antonio went on to release a solo single ”Simple Mathematics” which has generated positive buzz from radio play and gained a following after performing it live.
He has even been noted as a “great” singer by Evan Rogers of SRP Productions. His fan base expanded in the Caribbean, as he emerged the winner of the keenly contested Eastern Caribbean Digicel Rising Stars Competition in 2008.
