Honour for ‘Mr. TV,’ Wale Adenuga, from Nasarawa State government
Renowned television producer and Chairman of Wale Adenuga Productions (WAP), Mr. Wale Adenuga, was recently honoured by the Nasarawa State Government at the maiden edition of “Nollywood Iconic Personalities Award,” which took place at Ta’al Conference Hall, Lafia, the state capital.
The event was an opportunity for the Nasarawa State Government to recognise several individuals from different parts of the country who have made positive impact by building the film and television industry to where it is today.
Adenuga received the award alongside Zeb Ejiro, Tunde Kelani, Teco Benson, Sani Muazu, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Hilda Dokubo, Magaji Mijiyanwa, Pete Edochie and a few other selected prominent personalities.
Adenuga, who was represented at the event by Mr. Claude Mwamba, Business Development Director of WAP, said: “Since I established WAP over 40 years ago, it has always been my desire to give my all in contributing my quota to the socio-economic development of Nigeria through what I do best- entertainment.
“I really appreciate this award and look forward to partnering with Nasarawa State, as well as other states, in showcasing the untapped potentials of their rich culture and tourism endowments through WAP’s TV programmes and channel.”
Over the years, Adenuga has established several award-winning platforms that have greatly improved the quality of the Nigerian television and film industry, including the television dramas, SuperStory and This Life; television comedy, Papa Ajasco and Reloaded; children’s television show, Nnenna and Friends; the 24-hour family entertainment channel, wapTV; and the government-accredited PEFTI Film Institute.
