The Best of Nollywood (BON) Awards will hold its 15th edition in Osogbo, Osun state.


The organisers of the annual award announced this while revealing the host of the award ceremony.

The event, scheduled for December 22, will see Kunle Remi, the actor, as the host.

The organisers also announced that Toun Cole, a media personality, will man the red carpet.


In a statement, Seun Oloketuyi, BON founder, said the choice of Osun as the host state for this year’s BON Awards reflects the support of Ademola Adeleke, the state governor, for the arts and entertainment sector.

Oloketuyi also expressed faith that the upcoming ceremony will be the most spectacular in the awards’ history.

“Governor Ademola Adeleke is a big-time lover of the arts,” he said.


“Long before he became governor, he identified greatly with the entertainment sector.

“The moment we presented him with our wish, he accepted us wholeheartedly and even asked us to sound the gongs that Osun was going to host the biggest and best BON Awards ceremony the industry has ever seen.”

Regarding the selection of Kunle Remi as the host for the event, Oloketuyi said: “We are not just interested in getting the rave of the moment.

“We are focused on people who can deliver value and that is what Kunle Remi represents.”


In November, the organisers unveiled the nominees for this year’s ceremony.

The BON Awards ceremony was first held in December 2009, in Ikeja, Lagos.

It has since continued to be a creative strata for the Nigerian movie industry.

The award ceremony has been hosted in different states including Ogun, Oyo, Kogi, Kano, Ekiti, Delta, and Abia.
