Statement of the Best of Nollywood Award, 2016 Jury on December 10, 2016


On behalf of the Jury for the 2016 edition of the bBest of Nollywood Award, I welcome you all to this night of celebration. I say celebration because it is an evening to honour the resilient creative spirit of the Nigerian filmmaker.

This awards specifically aims at promoting the Nigerian cultural essence in movie making. This is why emphasis is placed on movies that are produced in the indigenous languages. As we said last year however, we hope that more producers will come forward and venture into film in our some other languages than Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba.

I must say that everyone sitting here tonight is a winner. The fact that you made the nomination list is an indication that you deserve this honour. Those who take plaques home are a emblems of the excellence that you all represent. How else do we explain the fact that of over 120 movies and 1000 practitioners that we had the opportunity to assess this year, yours is one of the just a little over 40 movies nominated. And that you are one of the less than a hundred practitioners recognised in this room tonight. Our hope is that tonight’s honour will inspire greater passion and excellence in us.

The creative industry is a fertile ground for governments and investors to sow in Nigeria, more especially in the period that our nation gravely needs to diversify.  This jury hopes that our state governments especially will look at ways to raise the revenue profile of their states by investing in this industry.

We wish you all a very pleasant evening as I call on my colleague, Tope Duker to hand over the list of winners to CEO of BON, Mr Seun Oloketuyi
