Coming on the heels of a successful hosting of the 2012 edition of the Nigerian Broadcasters Merit Awards (NBMA) in Lagos, the
organisers of the event have concluded plans for an event to further celebrate and honour winners at the NBMA. Tagged ‘The Nigerian Broadcaster’s Nite,’ the event according to the founder, NBMA, Kazeem Popoola is expected to further celebrate the achievements of Nigerian broadcast industry as well as its practitioners.
He went on to explain that on every last Thursday of the month, one of the winners from the NBMA would be selected and be hosted at one of the biggest lounges/clubs in the state. In addition, Popoola also noted that beyond the extensive celebration of the winner with loads of music and comedy, the event would also have a red carpet reception and an award of certificate to the winner to commemorate the NBMA plaque earlier won.
“We are giving this monthly gig a national appeal by taking it round all the states of the federation so that NBMA winners from other states would have the opportunity to be celebrated right in the cities where they are popular. The Nigerian Broadcasters Nite will be loaded with surprises and an elaborate coverage from the media.” The maiden edition of the event has been scheduled to hold on February 23, 2013 and Popoola dropped what many would consider a teaser at this point.
“As we eagerly begin the countdown to the exciting event, the question on the lips of everyone is who gets chosen or picked for the maiden edition.”
