Mr. Ferdinand Mmadike, spokesperson for the organisers, The Reality Entertainment, said: “The choice of Freeze was borne out of his current dominance on the airwaves and it is unarguable that Shan George, who majors in Mass Communication, is one the famous faces that cannot be ignored in the Nigerian entertainment industry.”
Among programmes lined-up that will add glitz and glamour to the yearly event being organised by The Reality Entertainment are red carpet reception, live studio broadcast, command performances from top rated music stars ,humour merchants and other side attractions.
