CELEBRITY fashion designer Mudiaga Enajemo popularly known as Mudi is the recipient of O’jez Entertainment Awards for February, and the foremost designer who hails from Delta State, has assured he would be present to receive one of the industry’s most prestigious awards on Sunday, February 26 at the celebrity restaurant, O’jez, inside National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos.
Mudi is being honoured for his invaluable contributions to both the fashion and entertainment industries in Nigeria according to O’jez’s Chief Executive Officer, Chief Joseph Odobeatu in a statement. “Mudi is one young Nigerian that has made this country proud across Africa.
His Mudi label has gained grounds in East, West and South Africa and he makes clothes for all celebrities and all classes of people in the continent. Like I always reiterate, O’jez Entertainment Awards was instituted to celebrate Nigerians that have distinguished themselves in their fields of endeavours. Consequently, we are celebrating Mudi on February 26 here at the only celebrity restaurant in Nigeria, for his achievements so far while encouraging him to strive more.”
O’jez and Evergreen bands will be on call to dish out soul lifting highlife tunes to Mudi and other invited guests while comedians MC Shakara, Elenu and compere Charles Inojie will all entertain the award recipient. Odobeatu said: “O’jez Entertainment Awards is fast carving out a niche for itself as one of the industry’s most credible awards.
It is given on merit to well deserving people in the society, it is not solicited for and cannot be bought like some many awards around that is why someone like Prof. Wole Soyinka, Prof. Femi Osofisan, Bahorun Dele Momodu, Ken Calebs Olumese, and Alhaji Bamanga Tukur among many others can proudly display our plaques in their homes and offices.
For over a decade now, we have consistently given this monthly award, (I don’t think there is any monthly award around) to achievers in the society. A time will soon come that if you are an achiever and you have not received the O’jez awards, you are not yet an achiever because the awards committee made up of people like Nollywood actors Zach Orji, Ejike Asiegbu, Charles Inojie and media lobbyist Justin Akpovi-Esade among many others ensures the right person is chosen monthly.
I am proud of the O’jez awards,” Odobeatu said.
Mudi in accepting the nomination for the awards in a statement posted on his Media Company, Media Image Managers’ website; www.mymediaimage.net and Facebook page, Media Image Managers, said he was indeed honoured to be O’jez’s award recipient for February. “I am honoured and I feel proud to be nominated for the O’jez Entertainment Awards.
I have attended same awards ceremony in the past where others were celebrated but I never knew it would be my turn. Truth is, I feel proud that some group of people somewhere are taking note of what others are doing and have decided to recognise these efforts. I will have to cut short my trip overseas to be here in person to receive this award.”
The show is expected to start by 7.30pm.
