Richie Stephens to be Honored by ASCAP For Rihanna’s “Work”

It is a major accomplishment at this time in my career. Richie Stephens is a successful Jamaican singer/ producer for over two decades; he was born and raised in Westmoreland. ASCAP   is the only American based association that protects the copyrights of songwriters, composers and music publishers by monitoring public performance of their music, whether it be live performance or via broadcast, and appropriately compensate them. ‘Work’, captured the song of the year and   also sold the most digital copies for   2016. The reggae crooner   was not only a Grammy Award winner but   was also awarded the Jamaican Governor-General’s Achievement Award for contributing to civic, social and recreational projects in and around his birth parish. Stephens will be   given an   American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP) award   for his contribution to Rihanna’s chart-topping single   ‘Work’. Tweet
