The Jos Entertainment Merit Awards (JEMA) is the most pretigious award in Jos and till tommorow, used as yardtick for the sucess of Jtown artistes.
Even though there are many faults from the organizers, most of these while still unknown in the industry were always present at the event.
Fast forward till today, Jos artistes are not only boycotting the event, they are also derogating the event with their choice of words on Social Media.
Most of these singers take offence in the headies when they, or perhaps their favorites refuse to clinch a particular award.
Almost all the big names in the industry are receivers of one of more awards from the show and they have visited either in person or by representation.
It is worthy to note that no artiste is bigger than The Headies, even Sardonyx who is one of the biggest figures in the Jos industry today was a receiver of the Next Rated award in JEMA, and it was one of the greatest highlights of his career.
However, Prodigal Son’s assertion of JEMA being “Elmore and friends award” is very immature.
JEMA as one of the biggest Award show for any musical act in Jos do not mandate anyone to visit but speaking against the event shouldn’t come from any artiste if truly they aim to move the industry forward.
There’s no award show in the WORLD with flawlessness up to 100%. The JEMA needs more support from Jos entertainers than hate.
I hope one day we realize we are the ones who can project our own products to the outter world and whatever we call it would be accepted by others.
