The national president of PMAN, Admiral Dele Abiodun, ha promised to resurrect the glamorous NMA (Nigerian Music Awards) within months. He made this promise after a courtesy visit to the headquarters of ANN Plc, publishers of tribune newspaper in Ibadan.
Admiral Abiodun who was accompanied by Mr. Kolawole Olusegun of golden apple marketing solutions and Mr. Cletus George of PMAN informed that NMA had been the property of PMAN, but the crisis in the past created a lull in the music body’s activities allowing others to do what they like with the award. “Even before the court declared me the winner of the last election, I had always said that those organizing the NMA were doing so illegally, now that peace has returned, PMAN has begun works on the return of NMA” he said.
Speaking on the reason behind his visit to Tribune, he said it was to seek the support of the organization in ensuring that the proposed NMLA was successful as it is almost impossible to get the required mileage for events without the support of the media. The World cup, Grammy awards and other big events of today are big brands because of the media. The PMAN of today will always seek the support of media organizations for all our events especially the first ever awards for Nigerian music legends”, he said
“As we talk, Silverbird is one of the electronic media outlets that we have reached out to on NMLA” he admitted.
