Best of Nollywood (BON), organizers of the film industry’s annual, pan-Nigerian Roaming BON Awards, is set to premiere their latest documentary on two pioneers of Nigerian celebrity reporting, Chief Dele Momodu (Bob Dee) and Mayor Akinpelu, entitled ‘Pathfinders’ on Monday, September 7 in Lagos.

The dual-purpose event will also see the launch of the inaugural publication of Seun Oloketuyi’s (Mr BON) book entitled “From Me To You, The Story Of BON Awards”.

According to Oloketuyi, journalist, founder of BON Awards and executive producer of the documentary, ‘Pathfinders’ is the first documentary of its kind to focus on two of the Nigerian media giants who have contributed greatly to the growth of celebrity reporting in Nigeria. It tells the journalistic story of the two pioneers, to whom many journalists today owe their careers.

“The reality is that many famous reporters cannot tell their stories without mentioning Bob Dee or Mayor Akinpelu, they have been exceptional in their dedication to their craft and that inspired the documentary ‘Pathfinders’,” he said.

Oloketuyi added that the documentary aims to tell a story and inspire young famous journalists. Speaking about his first effort as an author, he revealed that just as the title suggests, “From Me to You, the Story of the BON Awards” is the story of the BON Awards.

“The foreword to the book was written by Otunba Gbenga Daniel, former governor of Ogun State, who happened to be the first governor to host the awards.

“The book will be officially released at the premiere of the documentary,” added Oloketuyi.

In addition, he revealed that the premiere and inauguration would be for a select few in conjunction with the protocols inspired by COVID-19, and the event, which would be strictly by invitation, would follow all the guidelines established by the government to flatten the curve and stop the spread of the virus.
