According to the statement released by the station, this year event is slated for Saturday, 21st November 2015 and the event is expected to host an impressive array of people from the fashion industry as well as other related industries.
So many concerns calls and messages has been coming in via our phone line and email trying to confirm how true and free and fair the event would be if it's actually holding.
During our findings, we noticed that the organizers have announced three different dates for this year event; same thing happened last year and and year before and the event didn't come up. That left us wondering if the same postponement will not happen this time again.
|On March 8, Organizers announced November 7 for the event (First date)|
Another observation is the new date of the event, November 21, which is less than 40 working days from the date of this publication.
When is the organizer going to call for nomination?
When is the voting process going to start and end?
How is the judging process going to be like?.
|On April 18, Organizers announced November 9 for the event (Second date)|
These and many other questions has created concerns on the free and fair selection of winners for the event.
