The stage is set for the biggest gathering of Nollywood stars as the 5th Best of Nollywood (BON) Awards come up in Asaba on 9th November 2013 at the prestigious 5,000 seater Dome in the centre of the Delta State capital.
“Apart from the Awards, we will be setting a record for the longest Red Carpet in the world, a dream we have had since 2010 but could not realised then because of technical hitches. This time around we are flying in adjurators from the Guinness Book of World Records from the United Kingdom (UK) to help ensure all goes well and the record is broken. So all that attend the programme will walk on the carpet,” Seun Oloketuyi, Executive Producers of the Awards, told thegazellenews.com.
According to him, “overall, it will be a better awards. The event will be managed by world-class event managers and with world class standards in mind. Already the first stage of the Awards has started with Nollywood filmmakers jostling to be part of the Awards submitting their movies which are being screened at the moment. The nominees list will be released on 7th September 2013”.
