    very well deserved, from toyin tomato down to corporal francis and richard to omoye and nnenna every single super story episode was a hit back to back until i dont know what happened… well i think his productions needs to evolve as the generation evolve into a new age and stories told become relative to realism. you know its same old superstory still told and acted the year 2001 super story way. lets have super story in queue with likes of tinsel and jacob”s cross yet let its pattern of interpreting different stories with several episodes remain. i mean if class and modernization can be added to these productions, a lot of us who are ardent lovers of superstory way back will rush back from work before 8 o clock every thursday to join our families sited in the living room for superstory.(AND YES IT BROUGHT FAMILIES,FRIENDS AND FOES TOGETHER) see papa ajasco and thislife…oh and the theme song for thislife is lovely..i can sing every word and sink into it….look into these things and rebrand…when waptv surfaced i was hoping for an indigenous station that will bridge the gap for the entertainment industry and showcase class and professionalism until Ebonylifetv surfaced and i’m like Gbam. i mean see production na.

    Realllllly cooool. We need more (and more credible) awards to promote excellence and visibility for all positive areas of endeavour.
    Awards for good work can change the world; when you award/reward something, it signals to people that society values that, and it drives behaviour i.e. people then say I want to do something like that…
