The nominations for the maiden edition of Nima Excellence Awards (Community development awards scheme) are out – unfortunately, the Nima God-father, in the person of dancehall King, Shatta Wale, was not nominated.
Recognizing and rewarding significant contributions of individuals, institutions and corporate organizations have been a global trend and NEA is no exception.
Quantum Communications and Each One Teach one Initiative (E1T1) are the organizing team behind the community based award scheme to strengthen communal development.
The awards are non-voting and nominees are carefully selected by Award Board in consultation with Event team in celebrating personalities and organizations for outstanding contribution to the area.
So per the above objective (outstanding contribution to the area), does it mean Shatta has not paid his dues in any way to the Nima community for the year under review to have had nominations – Presspeep.com ask?
The categories are open to either male or female personalities regardless of religious affiliation. See the full list of nomination for:
