The final day where the various nominees’ fate were determined came yesterday at the Walewale Astro Turf. The organizers of the North East Music Awards gave award plaques to all deserving winners who were adjudged by the fans as the best in their respective categories.
The night saw performances from various artistes from the region and our parent region, Northern region.
All in all, the event was a big success. Various artistes went home with awards whiles others too went home with no award. As I always say, the honour lies in the nomination and whoever got nominated is already a champion.
