The Nigeria Entertainment Awards officially opens online voting for the 8th Annual Nigeria Entertainment Awards (NEA Awards) taking place in New York City in September.
VOTING IS NOW available on the award site www.nigeriaentawards.com for all fans to begin supporting their favorite artists, actors and actresses, comedians and entertainers. This year, there are 34 categories and over 100 nominees from all across Africa, in film, music and other entertainment categories.
The organizers of the NEA Awards announced earlier in the year the addition of three new categories – ‘East/West/Southern African Artist or Group of Year’. The creation of these new categories is in line with the organizers commitment to celebrate, recognize and promote not just the Nigerian entertainment industry, but the overall African entertainment industry as well. Some of the nominees in these new categories include K’Naan, Navio, Sakordie, Dama Do Bling, and Efya to name a few.
Nominees for the NEA Awards are selected by a board of industry executives and members, based on the body of work put into market by the artist, actor, actress, comedians and/or entertainer from March of the previous year till March of the award year.
Fans are encouraged to support their favorite artists, actors and actresses, comedians and entertainers by voting and encouraging others to vote as well. The 2013 NEA Awards is scheduled to take place on Sept. 1 in New York City. The organizers are working on making this year even better than the last, and will continue to unveil more details in the coming weeks. Check out the full nominees list here.
