Hip-Hop World Awards 2009 produced by Hip-Hop World Award Magazine will be moving to a new home this year. The award producers recently announced a change of venue to Abuja, Federal capital of Nigeria.
“So many times, we have been confronted by people that Hip-Hop World Awards only celebrates Lagos based acts, that is part of the reason why we are embarking on this journey outside Lagos, explains Ayo Animashuan founder of Hip-Hop world Awards. “Moreso, we’ve looked around and found that the only venue that befits what we’re trying to achieve this year; that can accommodate all our ideas and experiments, is the international Conference Center Abuja”
Launched in 2006, the Hip-Hop World Awards is one of the country’s prominent award’s event recognizing the contributions and excellence of its musicians. Since its inception, it has been held in Lagos, former captial.
