Ghana Naija Showbiz Awards set with 2018 nominations
Organisers of the Ghana Naija Showbiz Awards will be unveiling nominations for the 2018 edition in Accra this weekend.
Nominees in 35 categories for the second edition of the awards are to be announced live on Fiesta TV broadcasting on DSTV platform and across major social media platforms by 7:00pm on Sunday, September 16, 2018.
Ahead of the nominations announcement, organisers have also secured a partnership with one of Africa’s leading tourism companies, Kaya Tours, to give Ghanaians an unforgettable travel experience to explore Nigeria (via road) for a weekend via a special ‘Celebrity VIP Trip’ package.
The second edition of the award is dubbed ‘Africa’s METGala’, and this has been upgraded to honour practitioners in the entertainment industry who have done exceptionally well in the past year.
They are expected to pick nominations in categories that cut across music, movie, comedy, TV/radio, social media and social fashion.
This year’s edition has the hash tag #thethrowbackedition influenced by the vision of the organisers to create a platform to honour veterans who did so much in modern entertainment collaborations between Ghana and Nigeria in the late 90s & 2000s.
Ghana Naija Showbiz Awards is a pioneer concept that has been created to push the very best of Ghana entertainment to Nigeria by pitching the best of the two countries together every year for honour and celebration.
The 2018 edition of the award will be held in Lagos, Nigeria, on October 14 and it is promised to be a night of honour, style and glitz for celebrities in the entertainment world from Ghana and Nigeria.
