Abeokuta to host City People Awards

CITY People Entertainment, after five years of continuous strive to revive show business activities in the country, the company, which has supported over 200 artistes, through launching of their musical album, movies, promoting shows, hosting them and several other activities has decided to hold the City People Entertainment Awards.

This, according to the management of the organisation, is to identify, celebrate showbiz veterans, practitioners, those that have died, their works and several achievers in the entertainment industry.

The awards will also honour 40 distinguished personalities as well as posthumous awards to those who made their mark in the showbiz industry while they were alive.
Nollywood and music stars that have been outstanding over the years will also be recognized.
This maiden edition of the awards that is organised basically to celebrate Nigeria movie, music and comedy stars, has 48 categories of awards in the same genres.

The event that is billed to hold on the June 14, 2009, at Valley View Hall, Ogun State Government House Abeokuta will have as Chief Host, the Executive Governor Otunba Gbenga Daniel. The event is expected to attract the highest number of showbiz stars in Nigeria to Ogun State.

Readers and fans of nominated artistes are expected to vote their preferred artistes via text messages to 08055001795 or 08076290496. The votes will be collated and counted by members of City People award committee.

Winners for various categories will be selected through SMS voting to numbers published in the magazine and other publications.

A pre- award party for nominees and other award recipients will be held on Saturday, June 6, by 12noon at Rock Beach Resort, Abeokuta Ogun State. Adequate arrangement for free transportation to Abeokuta and back to Lagos has also been concluded.

Asked why the event has to be taken to Abeokuta instead of Lagos where most of the people concerned are, the editor in-chief of City People magazine, Mr. Seye Kehinde, said weekends in Lagos are usually congested with such events, besides, "it is Ogun State that accepted to partner with us when we were looking for one."

Some of the celebrities nominated in different categories of the awards, which will be attended by the Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, are 9ice, P-Square, Timaya, D’banj, Uche Jombo, Funke Akindele, Jeta Amata, Julius Agwu, AY, Basketmouth and others.

Meanwhile, a pre-award party for the event will hold tomorrow at Rock Beach, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
