The Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo is expected to be a special guest of honour at the premiere edition of the Nigeria Ghetto Awards (NGA) alongside other top government officials with the awards show slated for the 11th of May, 2019 at the National Arts Theatre, Iganmu, Lagos.
The awards show which is an initiative of Blackwaves Promotion Nigeria was organized to celebrate individuals who have made massive contributions to music, football, journalism, arts and movies among other professions.
According to Ralph Agbogu, the Chief Patron of the promotion, “Our mandate is to discover and showcase hidden talents in every area of the country to the world.
“Our focus will mainly be on the ghettos and rural communities where talents abound. Ghettos are like furnaces that bring out the best in metals.”
He stressed that the awards would be used to recognize individuals who had weathered the storm and overcome challenges such as stigma and financial limitations to become achievers and pacesetters in their chosen areas.
