May 26, 2022

Davido, Liquorose, Mr Funny (Sabinus), Nancy Isime, Daniel Regha, Jenni Frank, Tunde Ednut and others are part of the 96 nominees for the second edition of Trendupp Awards – 

Nigeria’s first-ever awards for influencers and content creators. The awards continue to recognize and celebrate the excellent use of social media by celebrating the brains behind the creative content.

Now in its second year with the theme ‘Force of Influence’, this edition seeks to applaud the ingenious endeavors of creatives; from content creators and influencers to brands and organizations who have in various ways contributed to the growth and expansion of the social media space in Nigeria. Set in a total of sixteen categories, nominations were received from the general public via the official website https://www.trenduppawards.com/ and for accuracy and transparency, winners will be selected by the Jury; a combination of respected industry leaders.

This year, nominees not only stand a chance to take home the coveted Trendupp Award but also get to receive a $1, 000 cash prize each courtesy of the awards headline sponsor Chipper Cash App. 

Speaking on this year’s nominees, Trendupp Awards Judging council member Ayo Ishola, Creative Director, The Vidual Advocates said, 

“Although most people don’t see it or acknowledge it, a lot of work, time, dedication, and resources go into being a content creator or influencer. People most often only see the finished product online. This is why I am proud of what Trendupp Awards stands for, a platform to celebrate and acknowledge these creative minds for all the work they do in positively impacting our online communities through creative content, disruptive movements and campaigns. I, alongside other members of the jury, will continue to do our best to make sure the best nominees stand a chance to win.”
