nea2014

 

The nominees list for 9th Annual Nigerian Entertainment Awards was released earlier this afternoon. The NEA’s was created to celebrate and promote the talent in the Nigerian entertainment industry . In addition to the image and culture of Nigeria.

This years ceremony will take place at the Skirball Center Performing Arts, New York on the 31st August. The time period used for nominations is still unclear and the nominees list has already started trouble on social media.  Some of the nominations are duly deserved , whilst some on the other hand are quite questionable :/.

NaijaToLA will like to shout out the YBNL soldier Olamide who has secured 4 nominations , also Ayo Jay , Praiz, Chidinima , Sean Tizzle and Jesse Jagz on your nominations. Voting begins July 1st at http://www.neaawards.com in the meantime you can get all the latest news and updates on the ceremony by following the NEA Awards twitter account here
