Nominees announced for #MAYAAwards 2015


Organizers of the MOREKLUE ALL YOUTHS’ AWARDS (#MAYAAwards) have released the list of nominees for the 2015 edition of the awards scheduled to hold in February 2015.

In a statement made available to, organisers said music superstar Patoranking, Ibadan-focused ecommerce platform IBCityShopping, and the leading blog in Ibadan are among the nominees for the prestigious awards that attracted over 1,000 nominations.

Project director, Ademola Ajibola, said: “In line with our desire to crown new kings and queens who have in the past 10 months been amazing and incredibly excellent in their chosen fields, do we release this tentative list of nominees.

“We are breaking the norm this time as we won’t be celebrating the expected but the deserving. We had over 1,000 nominations and the awards jury carefully looked into the works of the ‘new hawks’ who are fasting taking the society by storm by being agents of change and selected the eventual 150 nominees.

“We can’t continue to celebrate the same set of faces, people, brands and achievers. We need to call attention to the new ones making waves and I can assure that anyone who wins any award at #TheCoronation should be checked up after 2 years to see how far they must have gone.

“We look up to support for this cause and we’d appreciate every efforts taken by our nominees to reach out to us as we don’t have everyone’s contact. We hope to have the world gather to see the new kings and queens when crowned in February, 2015”.
