On the eve of the GIAMA Awards, the Screen Icon Search (SIS) competition was held with a sole purpose of identifying and recognizing young and future talents with the right qualities to get into the Nollywood industry. The SIS was moderated by three top Directors/Producers in the African Movie industry – Emem Isong (Nigeria), Frank Rajah (Ghana) and Pascal Atuma (USA).
The top 5 winners of the SIS Competition “Diana Yekinni, Rosalyn Bertrand, Fontanne Bassey, Omolola Isola, Ashlon Handy” were announced during the award ceremony, and “Diana Yekinni” who emerged as the top winner for the 2012 SIS competition automatically sealed 3 movie deals with Emem Isong, Pascal Atuma and Frank Rajah and earned a free airline ticket to Africa to accomplish this deal. She is currently shooting in Ghana with Frank Rajah, and will travel to Nigeria to complete the movie deal with Emem Isong, and will finally star in a movie with Pascal Atuma in the nearest future.
In addition to the Airline ticket and Movie deals, Diana Yekinni also earned a Photoshoot, and an Exclusive interview with Golden Icons as part of the perks, and we look forward to seeing her growth in the industry.
