It was a fabulous night as the Beatz Award celebrated beat makers and other music professionals for its 5th edition at the Shell Hall, Muson Centre in Onikan, Lagos.

 

The award ceremony honouring contributors to the music other than performing artistes announced winners for 25 voting categories and 4 honourary (non-voting) awards on the night.

 

Popular musician Dr Sid was the host for the night and he had the crowd roaring with laugh at many points of the show. Comedic performances were also in abundance as Ovi Godwin, Deeone, Omo Baba and other comedians took the stage at intervals. Musicians were also not left out as upcoming acts K-town and Badman Flash thrilled the audience with their tunes.

 

Don Jazzy stole the show however when he announced that from next year, he would support the New Discovery Producer award with N1 million. This was after he was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution to the Nigerian music industry and the award was renamed Don Jazzy New Discovery Producer award.
