Nigeria Media-Nite out Award (NMNA) has finally unveiled nominees and categories for the 2016 awards, which is billed to hold on September 25, 2016, at Time Square Event Centre, Ikeja, Lagos. Unveiling the nominees to newsmen during the week, the founder of NMNA and chairman of Solkem Entertainment, Mr. Sola Olugbemiro, said the event had been the darling of many media practitioners, as it lends credibility to practitioners who are excelling in their different areas of concentration. According to him, “The NMNA was conceived 10 years ago with a view to carrying media practitioners along as an appreciation of their hitherto unrecognized contribution to the development and emancipation of the Nigerian nation. This, we believe, will further encourage and inspire our media practitioners to better their performances and work ethics”. Managing Director of 24-7 Zinto Marketing Limited, Segun Adewole, said this year’s award would be exceptional, as it would, for the first time, cover a large spectrum of journalists in the electronic media as well as print.
