Lango Entertainment Awards Nominations Forms Rolled Out As Search For Most Talented Entertainers Kick starts

The prestigious Lango Entertainment Awards-LEA is back with more promising improvements. The Awards which was birthed to appreciate local talents of our boys and girls that work their crafts but are almost not recognised for their enormous contribution to the entertainment industry was started last year by a team of local media practitioners who aim at bettering local arts.


This year however, LEA is headed for a successful crowning ceremony to be held in December, with the process kick started already. Nomination forms are now being picked for FREE!

At the launch of its 2nd edition (LEA 2017) on Monday at Pacific Hotel, Allan Obua LEA’s programme manager said two more categories have been added: Cultural artist/group of the year which he said will look at real traditional artists with traditional instruments so as to keep our culture alive. Another category is “Best Supporting Brand Of Year”.
He adds that fairness and transparency are key for this year’s event.

Nominations are now being picked from local media houses with no fee tagged to it according to Obua. He says after filling the form, one should return and leave them at Ambrozoli Wonders reception located on Bala road.
