Nigeria Entertainment Awards 2016: Call For Entries


The continent’s premier Entertainment Awards for Nigerians and Africans has announced the call to entry for the 2016 edition of the Nigeria Entertainment Awards (NEA). According to the Executive Producer of the annual awards, Tope Esan, the organizers are pleased to call for another award entry this year. Over the years, the NEA has been solidified and some categories have been refined in order to adjust to industry changes.

The NEAs was created to celebrate the amazing talent and contributions of Nigerian and African Entertainers to a thriving global entertainment industry while also serving as a bridge between the talents and their international fan base.

This year, new categories have been added to cover certain entertainment segments that have proven to last the test of time and are now worthy of recognition. The 10th edition which held last year on 6th September at New York City was a one-of-a-kind-event, and this 11th edition promises to be even better.

Azeem Jolasun, Executive Producer, NEA Awards, said:

“We are very excited about this years NEAs especially as we redirect our focus back to our core vision as an organization, which is to provide great entertainment for Nigerians and Africans from the global entertainment capital, New York City. The 2016 edition of NEAs will make it eleven years of celebrating Nigeria’s finest entertainment talents.”

The Executive Producer of the NEA, Cosmas Collins, spoke on the specific preparations for the event. He said they are looking at ways to expand on what has already been established for the last 10 years – bigger venues that would lead to a bigger production for this year’s event.


For the 11th edition of the NEAs, all entries for works that have been made public from May 1st 2015 to April 30th 2016 are eligible for submission. Entries close on May 15th 2016.
