AFTER months of intense planning and preparations all is now set for the maiden edition of Daylight Annual Leadership Awards, DALA, and first anniversary of Daylight Newspaper
Unarguably one of the biggest media events in Nigeria this year, the high-octane awards ceremony holds elaborately this Sunday, May 22, at the prestigious Civic Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos, amid glitz, grandeur and glamour with the green and white carpet starting at exactly 4.PM.
According to a statement issued today by Azuh Amatus, publisher and editor-in-chief of Daylight.ng, the reliable online newspaper, who is also the chairman and founder of DALA, several A-list Nollywood stars, captains of industry, top government officials, musicians, comedians and celebrities would grace the two-in-one ceremony already serenading Lagos and its environs.
“This maiden edition of DALA is definitely going to be star-studded and extraordinary. We are expecting in attendance dignitaries from all walks of life. Amazingly, DALA awardees cut across all frontiers of our national lives. We are celebrating them as true leaders in their respective fields of human endeavours. At the same time we are also celebrating our first anniversary as a media house in the nation’s tough publishing industry because it is not easy doing business in Nigeria as a young entrepreneur contributing to national growth and development,” stated Azuh, a multiple award-winning journalist that has extensively covered Nollywood, for almost two decades.
Meanwhile, DALA, as a revered award scheme primarily seeks to recognise, reward and celebrate excellence among Nigerians who have excelled immensely in various leadership positions and equally impacted positively on our nation in both public and private sectors.
Interestingly, the talented and famous duo of comedian Okey Bakassi and actress Jennifer Eliogu have been sensationally chosen as anchors of the historic event.
And to further rev up the evening of high-net-worth gathering, the hilarious quartet of Klint Da Drunk, De Don, D’Lectura and Mr. Makati, will thrill and titillate special guests with undiluted comedy from their rich repertoire of jokes and humour vaults.
While music star, Raw Nwanne would lead other talented acts on stage to make the evening more exciting, memorable and fun-filled.
