Ekiti State, which boasts of top 10 tourist centres in Nigeria, would be hosting the 12th edition of the BON Awards come December 5, 2020.
This was confirmed when the award crew paid a visit to the Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, at the Government House in Ado Ekiti on Monday, with the official hosting right plaque presented to him.
Recall that the 2019 edition was hosted by the Kano State Government in December.
The traveling award this year, according to the founder, BON Awards, Seun Oloketuyi, is in three phases: Children Day Book Reading, featuring: “Please Don’t Touch Me,” by Pastor Taiwo Odukoya, to be headlined by the wife of the Ekiti State Governor, Erelu Bisi Fayemi; visitat to top tourist locations in the Sunshine state by past winners of the awards; and the main event proper.
While accepting the hosting right, Dr. Fayemi appreciated the delegation for its patience and assured of Ekiti State people’s readiness to welcome the 2020 edition of the award.
He said: “Though I’m not a movie enthusiast, I’m married to one who bombards me daily with her analysis.
“So I can’t miss it.
“Ekiti State is a state of creative art and we have big names in the industry like Peter Fatomilola, Foluke Daramola, Odulade and many others.
“Ekiti is a lot more than what people think we are and we are very delighted to do this and very much love to be associated with the success of the BON Awards.
“We look forward to hosting you and be part of the series of events that follow it.”
