Posted January 14, 2022 by with 25 comments

Fresh off his win last night as the newly-crowned Performer Of The Year at the 2022 Str8UpGayPorn Awards, Rhyheim Shabazz took a moment today to thank fans for their votes and their support in helping him score the top gay porn award of the year. He also gave a tongue-in-cheek acknowledgement of how nice it is to win during a year without an in-person ceremony, because it means he doesn’t have to get dressed up and take the stage (I can relate to this 100%). Rhyheim—a previous Str8Up winner in 2020 for Best Newcomer—now joins past Performer Of The Year winners Carter Dane, Austin Wilde, Blake Mitchell, and last year’s recipient Angel Rivera, so he’s in exceptional company, right where he belongs. Here’s his acceptance speech:

Thank you to Rhyheim Shabazz for all his outstanding work that so deservedly earned him the award. Str8Up is honored to name him 2022’s Performer Of The Year on behalf of everyone who voted, and here’s to another stellar year!
