The Nigerian Broadcasters Merit Awards (NBMA), as the name implies, is an award ceremony organized to celebrate, honour, and appreciate past and current broadcasters, as well as those who have passed on; who have distinguished themselves as role models, mentors, and propagators of social change in society.
These great people have had a memorable impact on their listeners and viewers over the years through their programmes, as they educate, inform, entertain, and promote peace.
NBMA, the pioneer of the prestigious awards for TV/Radio broadcasters and on-air personalities comes up on Saturday, November 15, at the Ballroom of Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Seasoned broadcaster, Femi Sowoolu, who is the NBMA’s patron, is expected to welcome all the invited guests, and on the wheels-of-steel is effervescent DJ Unbeatable of Rainbow 94.1FM.
Among the lined-up programmes to add glitz and glamour to the event includes, a red carpet reception, dance drama, fashion exhibition by 3G stitches, command performances from shining music and comedy stars, and other side attractions. 92 competitive categories are up for grabs as over 350 nominees jostle for this year’s NBMA.
