The Liberian entertainment industry is one that could be compared to a slow moving train that’s destined to get to its destination no matter how long it takes. Between the space of 5 years the industry has experienced rapid growth when it comes to new labels springing up, international collaborations, song contents and branding as a whole. A very key and important aspect of every industry is the visual aspect of the industry where the music videos and movies fall under. This aspect we can say haven’t been really getting focus as it’s ought to get.
The Bluelinks family as part of their continuous effort to show their high level of interest in the growth of the Liberian entertainment industry once again have come up with this great initiative which is set to raise, improve the quality of music video, movie production and also to encourage the artistes to invest more into their craft. The award was officially launched on the 20th of February 2019 with its first media briefing and it had the participation of the HOTT Fm/HOTT TV’s top executives like DJ Blue, Double H, Master Queen, Cypher D’ King, DJ Weego Zico e.t.c.
The HOTT TV video award which will be held on the 21st of December 2019 promises to raise the bar high as they will be bringing on board international TV partners from 9 other countries and it was also emphasized that the award is not only meant for Liberian based artistes, the event is going to encourage other Liberian artistes that are in Diaspora. Assurance was also given during the conference that the voting process will be 100% transparent and they will also bring on board an independent accounting firm for credibility and good accountability during the award process. The voting process will be done through a website that will be up very soon.
It was made known that they are opened to ideas from everyone to make this a huge and remarkable success.
DJ Blue shared some lights further on how video projects your works be it a music video or a movie to a larger audience across the World. He also slightly talked about how HOTT TV is in process of being the first Liberian TV station to be aired on DSTV as this will project Liberia’s art and culture to the World!
Double H concluded by stating that over 9 African countries will be on ground during the award. Wow!
