According to the CEO of Otown Gist Entertainment, Mr Chinedu Hardy Nwadike, there is need to improve on the success of the 2013 and the best way to do that was to introduce more categories.
“Last year it was just one award contested by 5 people but this year we are making it bigger with 5 more categories and one subcategory.

Personality of the year is not just for everyone, it is for people who have done something for themselves and the public; in this case, they are mostly people with appearances on www.otowngist.com” He said.

Otown Gist Personality of the Year, Artiste Category, Male
