A decade ago, the nominee lists of most entertainment award organisers would probably be dominated by musicians or producers. But, certainly, the industry is evolving–expanding, incorporating, and recognising individuals working the other components. Today, the digital space reckons as one platform that’s indispensable to the growth of entertainment. And it is in this department that Enu Jacob has proved exceptional. However, Enu is a geek with a twist. He wears many hats.
A pro web developer and digital marketer, Enu graduated from Houdegbe North American University, Benin (HNAUB) with a B.Sc. in Computer Science. He’s also a filmmaker, graphics designer, video editor, and 3D developer. Well, the list goes on. But we already know there’s a reason why he emerged as the Next Rated Entertainment Personality at the West African Youth Honors ’19 Awards.
A native of Cross Rivers state based in the Center of Excellence, his resourcefulness has gained him rapid recognition in the music industry as he now manages the CEO of a fast rising entertainment label. A sanguine personality who grooves as much as he grinds, Enu is either dancing, cooking, or playing with his cameras when at leisure.

Quite a young, promising lad, don’t y’all think?
