Naija Awards, the brain child of Tunde Oshinibosi, will hold in November.
The ceremony, which will be conducted in pure Pidgin English, according toÂ Oshinibosi, will take place at Majestic Rock Hotel, Apapa, Lagos State, Nigeria, onÂ 21 November, 2010.
He said that the awards will cut across all fields of endeavour including music,Â movie, football, comedy, Naija in diaspora and post humous awards, among otherÂ things.
He said that reason for holding the award in Pidgin is as a result of the need toÂ look inwards and to project Nigeria through entertainment with Pidgin English, theÂ most commonly spoken language in the country.
Tunde Oshinibosi also said Nigerian celebrities will present awards in PidginÂ English at the occasion.
