Illtalian nominated for Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award in Hawaii
Hawaiian rapper Illtalian was officially nominated for a Nā Hōkū Hanohano award when the Hawaiian Academy of Recording Arts (HARA) released their annual list of nominees. The Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award (also known as the Hawaiian Grammy) is the most prestigious musical achievement in Hawaii, and the award ceremony is held yearly to honor the state’s best and brightest musical releases.
“It’s an honor to be nominated,” said his executive producer, Ariki Foster. “It’s pretty rare for a Kauai artist to get nominated since we’re from one of the smallest islands, especially in the rap category. I don’t think it’s happened before. I’m very excited to see where we go from here.”
