The Nollywood @ 20 Awards Night held on the 27th of November 2013 at the Intercontinental Hotel, Victoria Island Lagos. In the best of cases, that hotel would have been superb for a show of that magnitude but on this occassion, the hotel itself aided the sloppiness of the show by incessant and disgraceful power cuts and interruptions within the show. I counted such power cuts three times and it was more shameful when some young group of dancers were in the middle of their dance routine on stage!
Hadn’t there been a year long hype around this event? Hadn’t we been inundated with television commercials on major national and satellite television stations asking people to prepare for a spectacular celebration? If this event was intended to be the Mother of all Nollywood Celebrations, then all we witnessed last night was an abortion and a stillbirth rolled into one.
