Veteran actor, Segun Arinze, has been chosen as the artistic director of the Best of Nollywood Awards to be held by the end of the year.
Veteran actor, Segun Arinze, will direct the proceedings at the Best of Nollywood Awards 2015 event, scheduled to hold in Akure, capital of Ondo State in December, Punch reports.
This was made known by the executive producer of the event, Seun Oloketuyi. He said, “The choice of Segun Arinze is predicated on the fact that we promised that this year’s event will surpass the previous editions in all ramifications. We are counting on his experience as an actor and organiser, as well as his image in the film industry, to help us ensure that we have a BON awards to remember. We look forward to having a good time working with him.”
Arinze expressed gratitude for being honoured to direct the event, selecting him from crop of other equally competent actors.
“With a profound sense of duty, I accept the gesture of the organizers of BON awards in appointing me as the artistic director for the 2015 edition of the event. The BON awards is dear to me because it is a homegrown reward platform for Nigerian actors and that was one of the reasons I accepted to join the train that was in Akure, Ondo State recently for the unveiling of the host state.”
