K'naan Named Artist and Songwriter of the Year
The Toronto native earned statuettes for "Artist of the Year" and "Songwriter of the Year" at the ceremony, which celebrates the best in Canadian music. In categories that included notable names such as Michael Buble, Diana Krall and Metric, K'NAAN expanded his lifetime haul of Juno's to three. In one of the night's most memorable moments, K'NAAN, along with Drake, Justin Bieber and Nikki Yanofsky performed his global hit single "Wavin' Flag" to close the show.
The original of this all-star version was re-recorded as a single with proceeds going to Haiti relief and has since gone to the top of the Canadian pop charts and has been certified double platinum.
