Francis Amirize, project coordinator of the Nigerian Social Media Awards, describing recognition as the authentic voice of the people on social media, said the competition which started in the second quarter of the year is a revelation of the reality that the media social is the most impactful tool of this generation. âFor us, it’s a revelation, that the social media platform, no matter how trivial you make it, can only be ignored at the peril of a brand or a political figure. These days, perceptions and opinions are formed on social media, which means brands and personalities have to start paying attention to what the social media audience is saying about them. Brands and personalities can be made or tarnished in this omnipresent and as democratic space as possible. These winners emerged through a digital voting process, overseen by a credible jury board, who worked tirelessly to execute the mandate with the utmost transparency and fairness. We are seriously considering bigger Nigerian social media awards in 2022 â.
