Lagos hots up for Daylight Leadership Awards
All is now set for the maiden edition of the Daylight Annual Leadership Awards (DALA) billed for May 22, at the Civic Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos. Organized as part of activities to mark first anniversary of Daylight Online Newspaper, the organisers have released list of some leading showbiz practitioners that will grace the event.
According the Publisher/Editor-in-Chief of the online paper Azuh Amatus, the glamorous event, which will open with a special Green Carpet reception by 4pm, will be a star-studded evening.
“Several leading lights in the nation’s entertainment industry, especially Nollywood, have confirmed they would honour us with their presence. But we are keeping their names under wraps as a surprise,” he hinted.
Meanwhile, over 50% of DALA awardees were chosen from the nation’s vibrant entertainment industry, comprising Nollywood, music and comedy sectors respectively.
“We are celebrating them alongside other honourees for the good works they are constantly and consistently rendering as role models, national/international ambassadors of this great country and above-all, true leaders in their respective fields of human endeavours,” he said.
Already, the duo of comedian Okey Bakassi and actress Jennifer Eliogu have been unveiled as hosts for the ceremony, which will be spiced with music and comedy. Among artistes expected to thrill at the event are Klint Da Drunk, De Don, D’Lectura and Mr. Makati, alongside other music acts.
