It isn’t everyday that the stars put as much thought into their red carpet appearance as they do when they are gearing up to sashay down the red carpet of one of the most prestigious award ceremonies. Needless to say, the attendees also put their best-fashion foot forward for the red carpet of the BORA Pre-Award party which held on Thursday February 25, 2016, at the Platinum Lounge, Hotel Presidential, Port Harcourt, shining the spotlight on Rivers State’s best trailblazing talents from different facets of life.

The event – a first of its kind in BORA history, was an evening of money-can’t-buy experiences, giving its undivided attention to celebrating some of the most outstanding individuals and companies from the State; who were also presented with Certificate of Nomination.

The show featured unforgettable performances from legendry comedian and past BORA winner, K. O. Baba and reggae icon Mr. Rawbest. They thrilled a packed-out hall of esteemed entertainment and fashion industry guests, captains of industries and the next generation of leaders.

The BORA Pre-Awards VIP Event also featured performances from Shimar (MTN Project Fame West Africa, Season 4 Contestant), and Dance Knight. Guests also had opportunities to enjoy some refreshments and talk with nominees after the formalities had taken place.

In his address, President/CEO of BORA, Mr. Lawson Khel, said “Excellence has a ripple effect; One drop can initiate a cascade of possibility, each concentric circle gaining in size and travelling further. Each year, our exceptional nominees create these ripple effects in others in their fields – making them to develop a sense of self, helping them to understand that work shouldn’t just be done, but done excellently.  At BORA, we believe that an individual that creates impact is one who teaches young people to take initiative, become remarkable artists, and to question the status quo.”

In another development, a prominent elder statesman, Chief Dele Daniel-Kalio, said “In our society today, so many significant individual and collective activities take place each day. Although it is impossible to outline them all, but organizers of the Best of Rivers Awards have been able to identify many noteworthy moments.” He further expressed how incredibly proud he is with the significant and ongoing involvement of the organizers of BORA in recognizing excellence in Rivers State.
