PROFILES OF NET HONOURS RECIPIENTS


ONYEKA ONWENU

This actor, broadcaster, singer and songwriter personifies excellence in all its ramifications. All through her glorious career, this indefatigable trailblazer continuously reminded us all that excellence is never accidental; rather, it is a result of incessant strives for perfection.


ZEB EJIRO

One of the country’s most prolific television drama writer and producer, with classics such as Ripples and Candle Light and Nollywood classics like Domitilla, Zeb Ejiro has shown repeatedly entertained millions of Nigerians and thereby contributed immensely to the development of the entertainment industry in Nigeria.


JAHMAN ANIKULAPO
Jahman was the last man standing of a dying breed of arts and culture reporters who shaped the entertainment industry, not by heaping unearned praise on celebrities, but by beating the industry into shape through conscientious and constructive criticism. Jahman stands a world apart from even his contemporaries: he is the reporters’ reporter, the editors’ editor and the most important arts and culture journalist of at least the past two decades in Nigeria.


DADDY SHOWKEY

Daddy Showkey’s sheer relentlessness defined the music of his era, from album recordings to live performances to reigning dance steps, it is an era still fondly remembered by many Nigerians with nostalgia.


AMIN MOUSALLI

Amin Mousalli has for long been the silent hand that rocks the cradle. When he launched Cool FM in 1998, something changed in radio broadcasting in Nigeria forever. Then WAZOBIA FM happened. His next move is television, those in that sector should watch out!


JAJ

Jacob Akinyemi Johnson popularly known as JAJ is an on-air-personality, news anchor and broadcast journalist. With a career spanning over two decades and his unique style of presentation, the JAJ brand has become a household name in the world of entertainment journalism.


JIDE KOSOKO, ADEBAYO SALAMI AND SUNDAY OMOBOLANLE

These three men are being honoured today as leading lights of a long-standing tradition of cultural presentation and representations through drama across platforms. From stage to screen, we have known these men, almost all through our lives, bringing fun and excitement into our homes for decades. Dedicated to dramatic performances from the days of the travelling theatre tradition, to the days of television drama and now to film, these gentlemen are prime examples of a life solely dedicated to service in the entertainment industry.


LAOLU AKINS

Laolu Akins, the man who produced Sir Shina Peters’ ACE album is one of the brightest minds in a long tradition of excellent producers that have put the Nigerian music industry on the global stage. And he didn’t do it for Sir Shina Peters alone. Adewale Ayuba, Chris Okotie, Onyeka Onwenu and many are among the careers his great mind and magical fingers brought fame and glory.


OJB JEZREEL


For Babatunde Jezreel Okungbowa a.k.a. OJB Jezreel music is undoubtedly the essence of his life and making beautiful music the purpose of his existence. OJB has been the creative force behind the numerous hits of a countless number of artistes. From Ruggedman, 2Face Idibia, Faze, Jazzman Olofin, Nomoreloss to Raskie, K-Show & Six-O, C-Mion, Abounce, Jafaar, Amah, Funke, the list is endless.


TAJUDEEN ADEPETU
Tajudeen Adepetu started from creating content for several terrestrial stations to establishing his own cable TV channel and TV station. Soundcity and ONTV have grown to become household names in entertainment. His other assets include Spice TV, a full channel on DSTV and a social media platform Buddie.


AYO ANIMASHAUN

His relentless pursuit of fresh avenues to engage the entertainment industry is unparalleled. From newspaper to magazine to online radio and now to Hip TV, impossible is not a word Ayo Animashaun is familiar with.


OBI ASIKA

As the CEO and founder of Storm 360, Obi Asika is at the forefront of driving urban entertainment across Nigeria and Africa. His work spreads across TV, film, music, events and merchandise.


EBENEZER OBEY

Baba Miliki! The gentle crooner is a true legend by all measures, his evergreen pacifist music continues to us towards gentler possibilities of human interactions and co-existence. He provided the soundtrack to a time when life was easier and the hustling and bustling that has become the trademark of contemporary life was not so dominant.


CHRISTY ESSIEN-IGBOKWE

Nigeria’s Lady of Songs transcended linguistic and cultural limitations and repeatedly went to the core of her music and connected with our souls. Her music reflected the socio-cultural concerns her life was dedicated to. Gone too soon, she’s affectionately remembered and her music continues to signpost our realities.


SUNNY OKOSUNS

Sunny Okosuns typifies the Nigerian artiste as a social activist. His many revolutionary songs dotted the lines of conflicts both national and continental. He preached revolution and reconciliation through his music long before he donned the robes of a clergyman. As our nation currently experiences the psychological and physical devastation from one conflict or another, it is the music of people like Sunny Okosuns that we miss; the kind of music that points out the foolery of focusing on our differences, rather that embracing ever more tightly, our shared values.

Baring it all as youths, talking about sensitive issues in our society that affect our lives in general.”
