On Saturday 29th May 2010, Ardijah received the ‘Manukau Institute of Technology Life Time Achievement Award’ acknowledging the bands contribution to New Zealand Music, from a career spanning 30 years. A collage video clip of songs released by the band played on the big screen during the award, followed by an acoustic interpretation of the classic hit song ‘Watchin’ U’ beautifully performed by the South Auckland Duo, Adeaze. Other recipients of the night included Otara Reggae Band ‘3HousesDown’ (pictured) who picked up awards for ‘Apra Best Pacific Song’. The night was jam packed with performances from groups like: J Williams, Smashproof, The Fuemana Whanau with Sweet & Irie, ending with a showcase from DawnRaid Entertainment. This will be a night to remember, Aotearoa’s (N.Z.) finest Pacific artist celebrating their voice through the language of music. Kia Manuia Tatou katoatoa. Congratulations everyone!!!!!!!
