The Nigeria Entertainment Awards (NEA) 2014 opens up submissions for nominees.

For my AML readers, this is a mandate, not an option. SUPPORT the NEA, your own positive people trying to make a difference. It is as easy as spreading the word, attending the event, throwing your sponsorship weight behind them and so much more that can be don. We can and should help support the NEA to create a top notch event because we all stand to benefit if this organization succeeds. I believe in what they are doing and I hope you all, a strong community of resourceful, intelligent influencers can throw your support as well behind this group.


It’s the month of April and that time of the year when the Nigerian Entertainment Awards (NEA) begins collecting submissions for the NEA awards held annually in New York City. All members of the entertainment industry are encouraged to put in their submissions in order to be considered for any of the award categories.

The process for submission has been streamlined this year, and made easy for all entrants. Simply visit the NEA awards website at and fill out the nomination form on the site. To help the reviewing committee, it is important that necessary materials that showcase the applicants’ body of work from March 2013 – March 2014 only, are submitted along with the form. This year there are 23 award categories broken out across music, film and others. The deadline for submission is April 30th, and nominees will officially be announced in the month of May.

The NEA awards is an established institution in the Nigeria entertainment industry, and has been a great platform that focuses on recognizing the amazing talent in the industry, while also serving as a bridge between the talents and their international fan base. All members of the industry are strongly encouraged to put in their submissions and align themselves with the institution.
