The Nigeria Music Video Awards (NMVA) has announced the winners of the 2015 edition of the awards.
Bear in mind, 78 hours to the D-day, the awards ceremony was postponed indefinitely last year with the organizers citing logistic challenges as the reason for the decision.
“It was a tough call but it was inevitable,” the organisers said adding that “the need to overhaul the concept, with a view to making it more purposeful also overwhelmed it”.
On why they are releasing the winners for the 2015 edition despite the fact that the ceremony was not held, the Coordinator of the award, Mr. Cally Ikpe said:
“All other stages of the 9th edition of the NMVA was observed, from the call for entry, the nomination and to the online voting among other ancillary programs. It is imperative that the public is let in to what the result of the process is. Though belated, but we are pleased to announce the winners in the various categories for the 9th edition of the annual Nigeria Music Video Awards. In a short while, we will also let you know what the plans for the 2016 edition are”.
