The CEO E-Sure Celebrity Awards, Stanley Akalanu, (E-Sure) has urged angry entertainers to sheath their sword so that everyone can work together towards the development of the entertainment industry in Imo State and South East in general.
Stanley Akalanu who is a staff of Hot 99.5 FM Owerri, said that the aim of the award is to build and not to destroy as many are thinking because they were not shortlisted in any of the categories of the awards.
E-Sure who spoke to www.otowngist .com ahead of the grand finale of the award ceremony which will be held at Bilton Continental Hotel Owerri, on Friday August 2, 2013 said “Anger won’t solve anything. We all need to work together no matter the lapses.
The platform will get better because this is the first edition”
He however called on the artistes to keep improving their games so that one day it will surely be their turn and it is also the only way someone else can spot them.
He added that the award was designed to encourage and appreciate entertainers from the South East geopolitical zone (Imo, Abia, Enugu, Ebonyi and Anambra State), especially those who have contributed to the growth of the industry.
He further stated that there will be more awards to be given out aside the few that were listed on the official website for voting, proposing more than 20 awards for the grand finale.
