Speaking to our correspondent, Greg Odutayo, Executive Producer of Royal Roots Communications Network Limited, noted that the recent nominations are a further attestation to the top class quality of company’s productions, adding that his outfit will continue to push out jobs that can compete with like productions from any part of the world.

“Of course, we give God the glory. It is a further attestation to the high quality of our productions. International best practice has always been our watchword. We go to great extent to ensure that we our works can hold their own against any other production from any part of the world,” said Greg Odutayo.

“This goes to show that it was not a flash in the pan when Edge of Paradise first was nominated during the 47th edition of the same awards. But then, it is also a challenge to us. It means we can’t afford a drop in standard. We must continue to improve,” he concluded.

The festival has continued to be the foremost and serious creative event covering all genres of television programming like no other of its kind worldwide. The award ceremony comes up between 6th and 10th of June, 2010.
