Groups to be recognised include individuals, government functionaries and organisations that have helped in various ways toward shaping the Nigerian movie industry. Speaking about the proposed event, Awoji told newsmen,

“There is no doubt Nollywood is now a global brand, and it is time to celebrate our brand Ambassadors for their immense contributions to the growth of a brand that has created jobs for many Nigerians.”
Anyone across every sector, who have shown uncommon patriotism in one way or the other needs to be so honoured.
“They all need to be celebrated for them to be inspired and do more for Nollywood.”
