Tiwa Savage, Burna Boy, and Wizkid are some of Nigeria’s top leisure celebrities who have been announced as some of the nominees for the maiden edition of the Nigerian Social Media Award.
The award ceremony is scheduled to be held on December 11, 2021, at the Eko Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Competing within the premium class of the award ceremony tagged Naija Game of Thrones are 2Baba, Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage, Wiz Child, Olamide, Don Jazzy, and Genevieve Nnaji, who have been chosen from a month-long online survey.
The project manager, Francis Amirize, says the concept to institute a social media award in Nigeria stems from the fact that social media which a couple of years ago started as a fun spot has today metamorphosed into an opinion-shaping part of existence that may not be ignored within the scheme of things in the world.
“The Nigerian Social Media Award is an idea whose time is here and you’ll believe while you look at how the occasions on social media are shaping perceptions in the world today. The world spends millions of man-hours on social media everyday learning, entertaining themselves or others, and conversing. In all these, impressions are being created and perceptions are being shaped. So we’re looking at the brands, people, enterprises, artwork forms, and occasions which might be making these impacts yearly,” Amirize stated.
