Since its inception in 2010
The Nigerian Broadcasters Merit Awards
The Nigerian Broadcasters Merit Awards (NBMA), as the name implies, is
an award ceremony organized to celebrate, honor, and appreciate past, current and dead broadcasters, who have distinguished themselves as role models,
mentors, and propagators of social change in the society.
These great people have had a memorable impact on their listeners and viewers over the years
through their programmes, as they educate, inform, entertain, and promote peace.
Unfortunately, it has been observed that the Nigerian entertainment
industry has shown less concern in appreciating and celebrating Broadcasters and On-air Personalities (OAPs) (Radio and TV presenters)despite the fact that
they are the ‘star makers’ and the only road to stardom for both movie and music stars.
