NIGERIAN ENTERTAINMENT AWARDS

The Producers of the NEA Awards are pleased to announce the Nominees for the Fifth Annual NEA Awards scheduled for Saturday, September 18, 2010. The venue for the international event will be BMCC Tribeca Performing Art Center.
This year’s nomination list is considered the most intriguing in the history of the show. The producers of the show also expanded this years’ category list to include non-traditional entertainment segments like Radio and TV personalities, Reality shows and Fashion. The producers of the show recognize the continued popularity and successes of these segments and want to make sure that these groups are recognized as part of Nigeria’s Entertainment community.
West Africa Idol runner-up Omawumi leads this year’s pack with five nominations for her debut album ‘Wonder Woman’. Four of the nominations were for her debut album and one for her collaboration on late Dagrin’s song “Thank God”.
The late rapper, Dagrin comes next on the list with four nominations alongside, 2Face and Kefee.
One of the most intriguing categories this year, is the Best Album category where we have Wande Coal (Mushin2Mo’hits), Dagrin (C.E.O), Omawumi (Wonder Woman) and 2Face (Unstoppable) competing for the prize.
The Best Actress in a Film/Short Story will be one of the most highly competitive categories this year. The nominees for the category include veteran actresses Nse Etim for her role in Reloaded, Ini Edo in Native Son, Genevieve Nnaji in Silent Scandal, Stephanie Okereke in Nneda and Omotola Jolade in Deepest dreams.
