He continued that despite the huge pressure on him last year, he thank God that everything went successful.

Launching the National Entertainment Awards (NEA) 2020, the Chairman of the Awards Dr. Ezekiel Duramany Lakkoh said that he was surprised to have been chosen as chairman for this year.

He underscored that some musicians have people who they send around and called them manager, noting that such people are messengers not managers; that managers are people who manage the musician and take decisions on their behalf.

He also stated that a person who gives a musician money to promote his or her music is not his manager but his promoter, and advised that in any entertainment industry, two things should be looked into, which are talent and fame management.

He called on people to put more effort in the entertainment industry so that it will grow more than it is.
