CEO of the Nigeria Music Awards, Mr Abiodun Olusesan, states “Nigeria Music Awards 2006 is going to be out of this world, the fact that we are hosting the event in the UK takes Nigeria and its musicians to another level, a European level to be precise. There are millions of Nigerians living in Europe as well as this many non-Nigerians have shown great interest in Nigerian music for example, Tu Face Ibidia won the ‘African artist of the year award’ at the 2005 MTV Europe Awards and now he has international recognition, so the Nigeria Music Awards event assists to promote and publicise Nigeria’s extremely talented artists to a new
international audience”.

The Nigeria Music Awards ceremony definitely guarantees the best Nigeria can offer in music and unbridled entertainment, bringing together the creme-de-la-creme of Nigeria.

Ticket prices range from £40 to £125.
