WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MOREKLUE ALL YOUTHS AWARDS (MAYA) AND THE MAYA AWARDS.
MAYA is out to uplift and add more to the values of an average Nigerian youth and work towards the eradication of societal decadence and moral dissipation of our youths with no political or religious affiliation.
MAYA AWARDS was first held in December, 2010 as a Campus Award for Osun State University (Okuku) students and since then we paused, in order to have a broader, bigger, better event. The 2nd edition held on Sunday, February 23rd, 2014 amidst pomp & pageantry. The 2nd edition held February 08, 2015 at MAUVE 21 event centre, Ring road, Ibadan, Oyo State.
WHY MAYA AWARDS?
MAYA AWARDS is designed to be a 100% Nigerian Awards event with focus on young people from ages 18-41. We’d have categories spread across all sectors, and they will be based on merit with no preferential treatment for individuals, businesses, organizations and government.
MAYA AWARDS is created and developed by MOREKLUE GROUP, a Media, Events and Awards company. Our past projects include MORE MAGAZINE CELEBS HANGOUT, MOREKLUE PACESETTERS AWARDS, THE PLAYHAUZ TV & we also publish MORE MAGAZINE, one of Naija’s most read all youths tabloids.
MAYA AWARDS does not celebrate sentiments or tribalism as our nominees will cut across all tribes, sectors, class, persons and status and our major awards event will hold on Sunday, 31st January, 2016 at BAMBOO HALL, Opposite NNPC Gas station, Hotel bus stop, Omole Phase 1, Lagos.
The theme for #MAYA2016 is ‘INSPIRE. INFORM. REFORM’. The theme is premised on the fact that most youths are fast losing their faith and hope in Nigeria, yet we at MAYA believe a better and greener Nigeria is possible.
MAYA AWARDS is created and plotted to be a platform for networking, interacting, solidifying, renewing and enriching contacts, values and brands. All sectors of the Nigerian economy are involved in the MAYA as our nominations spread across virtually all branches of business.
Unlike most awards event that has an unlimited stretch of nominations, MAYA AWARDS is for the corporate player, entertainer, government official, artisan, students and all. Over the years, awards have been done in Nigeria and the focus is always on Music, Movies, Business, Campus, Fashion and so on.
