NMVA HOTS UP – Press Release

As preparations for the fourth consecutive edition of Nigeria Music Video Awards (NMVA) heats up, expectations are very high in every sector of the entertainment industry as to what to expect in this year’s event that is fast positioning as the most credible, most respected and most attractive out of Africa.

While the tempo is being sustained, the awards organizers remain resolute on their commitment to transparency and as such are weary of all lobbyists warming them to stay at bay as only good videos will be duly rewarded.

The event will take place at The New Exhibition Hall of Eko Hotel & Suites on November 28 and lots of plans are already in the pipeline. The lineup of artistes performing at this year’s award is quite legendary and it is something every music lover should be looking forward to. The nominees for the awards have since started canvassing for votes from their fans which can be done on the
award’s website, www.livebeats.net.

After the Saturday July 30, 2010 re-broadcast of the third edition of the awards on MNET via DSTV’s Africa Magic channel, the attention of the whole world was drawn to the first music video awards in Nigeria. The Nigeria Music Video Awards also received the NAFDAC stamp few weeks back. The Director General, Mr. Paul Orhii, a showbiz enthusiast, lauded NMVA as a truly Nigerian brand that is deserving of all the support it can get.

Artistes who were hitherto unknown were brought to the fore by NMVA owing to their excellently produced videos. In this league are names like, H-man, Mc-Loph, Jaywon and others; while also balancing their technical counterparts by rewarding new directors, editors, cinematographers and choreographers, e.t.c. New directors like, Mex, Gbenga Salu, Sesan Ogunro (who came all the way from the U.K to receive his honors), Wudi Awa, Bobby Hai and a host of others were encouraged to continue contributing their quota to the trail blazing feat of DJ Tee and Clarence Peters. The NMVA has established that artistes and video directors as well as producers can share the glory side by side on the same stage as witnessed at the very successful 2009 edition.
