After what has been an interesting year for so many reasons, the GAGE Awards is finally taking centre stage on April 24, 2021. This year’s edition is fully virtual, leveraging the best of technology to broadcast proceedings at the event.
The event is beach-themed, which is meant to help set viewers in a relaxed mode after such a tough past year.
“Digital came through for us and it’s time to gather virtually to celebrate the stars that made our lives simpler and better especially in the thick of the pandemic,” said a statement by the organisers.
The virtual edition will be hosted by Ex – BBNaija star Bisola Aiyeola alongside a stellar cast of entertainers billed to perform on the night.
The Influencer of the Year category, which got the internet in frenzy with over 20 million engagements on the GAGE Awards website, will definitely be one of the most anticipated categories on the night.
In that category are online powerhouses such as BBNAIJA revelations Erica Nlewedim and Nengi Hampson. Also in that category are Twitter top influencers Pamilerin Adegoke, Aisha Yesuf and Instagram top brand Influencer, Tomike Adeoye. Another big category to watch out for is the Online Comedian of the Year. Top contenders in that category are; Mr Macaroni, MCLively, Sydney Talker, Taaooma and Lasisi Elenu. Taaooma took home this category last year and it will be interesting to see if she can retain her crown as king of Online Comedy. The Banking app of the Year is another huge category to look for.Top contenders for the crown are GTBank, VBank, Zenith Bank, Access Bank and Alat by Wema.
