The nominees for the annual Nigerian Entertainment Awards have been announced by the organizers.

The Nigerian Entertainment Awards is now in its eleventh year and is still working at its initial aim of recognizing the contributions of Nigerian entertainers.

Despite this primary aim, the Nigerian Entertainment Awards also includes categories for non-Nigerians on the continent. The award ceremony for this year will take place in New York on Sunday 4 September.

Tiwa Savage and Tekno top the nominations list for this year’s Nigerian Entertainment Awards. The Nigerian Entertainment Awards also includes sections for DJ, Film/TV and comedy and radio and television personalities.
