It’s obviously no news that the much-talked about Nigerian Broadcasters Merit Awards has come and gone. The event that took place last night at NECA house, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos state will be talked about till the next edition. Although, winners of some categories could not be announced due to time constraint, no thanks to most On-Air Personalities, who came late, NBMA 2012 is bigger and better than last year.
We acknowledge the effort of our hosts, the trio of Ifedayo Olarinde a.k.a Freeze of Cool FM, Yeancah Adamu, formerly of Soundcity and Showbiz big babe, Toni Payne. Wonderful performances from the likes of General Pype, T-Code, Korede Bello, D’Lyte, Shebaby, DJ Stramborella, DJ Tunzy (Just 18 years old) Ceeboi from Ibadan, Jason Blu among few others cannot be left unmentioned. We also thank, Rainbow 94.1, our official Radio Station, Hola TV, Thompson Tabi, our able producer who managed the hitches very well, and very few team of The Reality Entertainment, organisers of Nigerian Broadcasters Merit Awards.
