Mercy Aigbe and Okey Bakassi to host Bon Awards

Organisers of the Best of Nollywood Awards are set to do everything to make the 2016 edition a memorable one as they have announced two heavyweights in the industry as hosts for this year’s award.

The CEO of Bon Awards, Mr Seun Oloketuyi, wrote in a statement, “It is with all pleasure that we introduce to you the hosts of this year’s Best of Nollywood Awards which will hold in Abia State on December 10, 2016. This year, we are proud to announce Okey Bakassi and Mercy Aigbe as hosts of the awards.

Elaborating on the choice of the duo, Oloketuyi further wrote “Okey is one of Nigeria’s most prolific comedians and an actor who has carved a niche for himself as a vintage entertainer for over two decades, while Mercy has, over the years, built her career as the new darling of the new school Nollywood.

“Bon Awards has eveolved, over the years, into a rallying point for the English and Yoruba genre, attracting notable A-listers in the industry. The organisers are working assiduously to produce an event that Nollywood will be proud of.”
