Annapurna to sponsor best child actor category at BON Awards

For the third year running, Annapurna Salt has announced its sponsorship of the Best Child Actor category in the Best of Nollywood Awards. According to Garba El-Suleiman, General Manager, West Africa Popular Foods, makers of Annapurna Salt, “We believe in Nollywood and the fact that its products capture our target market (mothers). Our main target audiences are the Mothers which is our channel to reach the children because Annapurna is an iodized salt that helps the children’s brain especially at their growing stage. And our brand aims to develop sharp and smart kids, qualities that are manifested in the nominees for Best Child Actor.”

 
El-Suleiman said that as has been the tradition since Annapurna started sponsoring the category, laptop computers would be given to winners in both the male and female categories.
The nominees for the Best Child Actor in the male category are Olamide David in Cobweb, Asimiyu Uthman Omokunmi in Ifa Iwa and Dozie Onyiriuka in Journey to Self. The nominees in the female category are Oyindamola Lanpejo in Finding Mercy and Titilayo Shobo in Unforgivable. Winners would be announced on November 9th at the grand awards ceremony holding in Asaba, the Delta State capital.
 
According to the jury of the awards, “The award in each category goes to the child (under the age of 11) who delivers the most impactful performance in a movie. We looked at how they interpret the role and the conviction and consistence with which they see it through.”
Meanwhile, the organizers of the BON Awards have announced that its pre-awards event, the Talents Meet Class, which was supposed to hold on October 15th but because it coincided with the Sallah holiday, was shifted. It would now hold next Friday, November 1st with Professor Pat Utomi as special guest.

this is the first sensible comment i've read. instead of them to go to public schools and search for brilliant kids whose education they can sponsor, they're busy with kids who would soon get carried away with fame and and probably soon drop out of school. Nonsense.
