LOCKDOWN ENTERTAINMENT is proud to unveil the official logo for The 9th ANNUAL SOUTH SOUTH MUSIC AWARDS (SSMA 2017).
The prestigious Award event will take place in Benin City and will see much of home grown contents and talents on display. This is to ensure that we do not stray from the birthing concept of exposing, honoring and celebrating the ever growing talents that abound in the South South region. The theme is FOR THE GLORY OF THE HOMELAND.
This year's edition is special to us for a couple of reasons. First, is our partnership the most classy and reputable hospitality brand in the region, The very prestigious RANDEKHI HOTELS (@randekhigold). As a result of this partnership, the brand new state-of-the-arts EKINADOESE EVENT HALL inside The RANDEKHI GOLD HOTEL will be the venue of this year's event. Thereby raising the class and standard of the SSMA.
Secondly, we are deeply excited to announce the sponsorship of The Best New Artist category by Edo-born International Super Star, CYNTHIA MORGAN (icynthiamorgan) through her CYNTHIA MORGAN FOUNDATION. The CYNTHIA MORGAN FOUNDATION is sponsoring the Award Category with the sum of FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND NAIRA as one of her ways of giving back to the home industry and supporting every exceptionally gifted young talent in the region and also the growth of the SSMA platform.
And also as exciting is our partnership with one of the leading brand names in the region's nitelife, NOVONIA PRIVE (@clubnovonia) , our host partner for The SSMA 2017 Pre-Party and After-Party.
