All Nigeria DJ Awards (ANDJA) is an annual pan-Nigeria Disc-Jockeying event primed to officially recognize and reward a very unique breed of music professionals. This crop of Nigeria’s finest DJs, who are spread across the country, can truly be referred to as ‘Unsung Heroes’. The event, which is set to take place in Lagos, Nigeria, is organized by Kanbitoons Company, an Event and Entertainment firm highly renowned for churning out great event concepts from time to time.
The objective of the event’s planning committee is not just to organize an average, every-day award but a memorable event which will ensure that the award recipients gain strong national and global recognition while the supporting/sponsor brands attract and receive consumer empathy for their products and services.
According to the executive producer of the event, Kanbi Owolabi (a versatile player in the entertainment and event management sector, with over 25 years’ experience under his belt as a top-level awards organizer) the All Nigeria DJ Awards (ANDJA) is billed to be a high octane, novel and unique event with limitless imaginations and a bold execution style.
He further stated that the main intent of the event, which is a veritable platform for awardees to leverage and increase their perception profile, is to highlight the achievements and contributions of the award recipients within and beyond known boundaries.
In view of their pivotal role in strengthening and developing the music industry, nationally and globally, great support and partnership is expected from esteemed sponsors/partners to help in rewarding and honouring these unique class of DJ heavyweights, influencers and new and upcoming ones. This, we believe, will launch the revolutionization of the art and business of Disc-Jockeying in this part of the world, he emphasized.
Noteworthy is the fact Kanbi Owolabi is a seasoned media practitioner and part of resource team members that worked on industry parameter-setting awards and projects that have been organized in Nigeria over the years. Such awards include Fame Music Awards (FMA), The REEL Awards, Awards for Musical Excellence in Nigeria (AMEN), The Movie Awards (THEMA), Snap To Stardom, Models Mingle and others.
More importantly, it was revealed that this maiden edition of the All Nigeria DJ Awards (ANDJA) 2019 was strategically conceived to let the world know that the art of Disc-Jockeying in Nigeria is a respected craft. It will specially recognize and reward these outstanding DJs for the major and immeasurable roles they have played and are still playing, not only in the overall Music and Entertainment industries but also in the social and economic sectors of Nigeria.
The awards will spread across 28 categories ranging from regional to National levels and will also have special consideration for female DJs who have stood toe to toe with their male DJ counterparts over the years. Nominees would be selected via a vigorous, credible and assured process by a clinically selected body of judges on the advisory board.
The All Nigeria DJ Awards (ANDJA) event is set to herald a new era of unequalled Disc-Jockeying for the next level that would be packed with diverse entertainment provided by renowned music artistes and comedians. It promises to be a special evening exclusively arranged to create fun and glamour for attendees and sponsors with a robust display of talented and creative performances from different Disc-Jockeys across the country.
