share on:
Young Entertainers and Music Awards, an award which is set out to celebrate the upcoming musicians and young entertainers in the Nigerian entertainment industry comes to town. PayBack Inc media, the organizers of the award at a press conference in Lagos revealed the award categories, judges and ambassadors for the awards.
The award which has a total of 32 categories is divided into two main groups; the general category, which is for the entertainers while the second, upcoming category, is for the upcoming musicians.
Among the ambassadors for the award is ace music producer, k-solo, radio presenter Kore Brown, broadcaster and musician Zdon Paporella, and Africa’s finest D.j, D.j jimmy Jatt (who could not make the media briefing due to other pressing matters). The judges for the awards include Fola Folayan a presenter with NaijaInfo, D.j Charles colee and D.j switch.
The idea of young entertainers and music awards came when I noticed the number of upcoming artistes in the Nigerian music industry who although, have not yet break into the market, but are doing pretty good. Then I asked myself, what if these artiste and young entertainers are encouraged, celebrated, will it not help further their musical and entertainment career? So I came up with Young Entertainers and Music Awards.
YEM AWARDS is focused on youths that have been impressive in the Nigerian entertainment industry. The Young Entertainers and Music award is set out to celebrate, promote and encourage the upcoming musicians and entertainers in the ever growing Nigerian entertainment industry. The awards also aim at creating an avenue where the upcoming and the established artistes/entertainers can come together.
This is our own quota we intend to contribute to the career of the upcoming artistes and entertainers as well as the Nigerian entertainment industry at large and we hope Nigerians will accept our idea and join us to not only to appreciate, encourage and celebrate the young entertainers and upcoming artiste. We also believe that since the future of Nigeria is in the hands of the youth, it is therefore important to start recognizing the Nigerian youths who are doing it big in the music and entertainment industry” those are the words of  Olakunle Oseni, founder of PayBack Inc media.
