Now in its second year, NET Honours seeks to recognize and reward top performers-actors, musicians, comedians- in the entertainment industry using the data on the NETng website and social media pages. The 2018 edition coincides with NECLive where entertainment players converge annually to discuss issues affecting the industry.
NET Executive Editor Jide Taiwo describes NET Honours as a methodological way to identify those who deserve accolades. ‘Each year, the Nigerian entertainment industry attains new heights by virtue of the entertainers’ successes. The joy they provide to Nigerians is unmeasurable and it is imperative to applaud these ladies and gentlemen. The winners are chosen based on the NETng’s annual report of searches and trends.’
Last year, Wizkid topped the winners’ lists while Tiwa Savage was the most popular female entertainer. In the year under review, some categories retained the previous winners while others were usurped by newer stars.
‘What NET Honours intends to do, is to show our workings- as they say- and show why who won what. The power to reward, we believe, belongs to our audiences across the website and social media. We simply compiled and curated their preferences’, Taiwo added.
The nominees are listed here and all sixteen winners will be announced at NEC Live.
