“For me, this is an opportunity to create something fresh for the entertainment industry and raise the level our brand commands in the minds of our audience,” Martin said.

We are fortunate to have been able to select a president/CEO who knows the organization well and has a deep commitment to our mission,” according to Cos Canino.

Fellow executive member Deejay Zimo said Martin, working alongside the existing staff, will be able to make great contributions and a smooth transition to a brand update scheduled for of 2014. Martin said his first priority is to “reassure and inspire” the entertainment community, that being a part of this event continues to add value to their career, artistry and most importantly, globalization
of the African music industry.

“It’s a transition without much change in my opinion because I will work with the same team but would expect a different result,” Martin said. “What gives me courage is the faith and perseverance of the team. We have good leaders within our organization and I believe when we work for a common goal, we’ve always achieved the best.”The NEA Awards will soon announce plans for the 9th annual event in New York City and preparation will commence on the popular show.
