According to the organisers, the award is designed to reward outstanding Nigerians have contributed immensely to humanity and economic development of the country over the years.
In the words of Princess Olukemi Egbeyode, a Lagos-based TV and movie producer, who is also the brain behind the project, “We have observed that in recent times people who have done greatly in various intellectual industries had not been celebrated or honored as they should.”
“The abbreviation,” she continued, “as a Yoruba word means, ‘You are good,’ this is a perfect interpretation of the award itself, because it is an award for the best.”


The moviemaker also stated that the award focused on men and women, who have done excellently well in their areas of profession, industries and works.
Those that have become achievers, by means of creating jobs/entrepreneurs, developing their industry, environment and society, those that have represented the country in one way or the other with high held integrity and honor, will be celebrated at the maiden edition of the event.
