Popular edutainment series, MTV Shuga has won another award, the Grand Prix award at the World Media Festival.
Last month it won a Gold Award at the World Media Festival and picked up the Grand Prix at the award ceremony that held on May 11 in Hamburg.
Emmanuel Uduma whose SMAT Media oversees the production in Nigeria took to his Twitter page to share the exciting news very early yesterday morning tweeting,
“MTVShuga has won Gold Award at World Media Festival & picked up the Grand Prix Award too! @ChrisIhidero”
“@ChrisIhidero @mtvshuga simply put, MTV Shuga Naija seasons have been back to back hits! Iyalaya anybody”
This gold award will be their third as they won the award in 2010 and 2014 for the first and third season of the series.
Judged by industry experts, the WorldMediaFestival recognizes true excellence in modern media communication. The 2016 awards entries were critiqued for writing, sound, editing, creativity, visuals, insights, and above all the extent to which the programme meets its stated goals and communicates with its intended audience.
MTV Shuga season 4 was directed by Biyi Bandele and features Emmanuel Ikubese, Nick Mutuma, Dorcas Shola Fapson, Sharon Ezeamaka, Timini Egbuson, Olumide Oworu, Chris Attoh, Zoe Favour, Mohau Mokoatle, Ifeanyi Dike Jr, Jemima Osunde and Peace Hyde.
