OMA LIVING SHOW and POSHMARILYN TV have announced that the maiden edition of the UNSUNG HEROES AWARD will hold on the Saturday 10th November 2018 at the Apostolic Resource Center Wuse II Abuja Abuja.
The award which was established by OMA LIVING SHOW in 2015, will be recognizing and celebrating the unsung heroes in our society whom have made and are still making positive contributions across all aspects of life.
In a statement released by the organizer of the award Marilyn Oma Anona said;
''celebrating unsung heroes is one of the themes of the OMA LIVING SHOW. So in 2015, the thought or idea of actually celebrating these UNSUNG HEROES beyond just having them as guests on the OMA LIVING SHOW was conceived but several attempts to organize and execute it failed due to lots of reasons the topmost being lack of financial capital and the best strategy to use in implementing this idea''.
''I was unrelenting as is with all of my dreams, ideas and goals. So this year, the thought came on so strongly and I knew it was just time to execute this no matter how small the MAIDEN EDITION would be just to prove that we actually love to inspire, encourage and celebrate people who have done a lot but hardly noticed... Moreover, We have given out awards to a lot of people in our mini events''. ''the unsung heroes’ award is very unique and our award categories are very different from the usual she continued.
Speaking further the popular TV Talkshow Host maintained that;
''in this maiden edition, we want to recognize and appreciate brands, companies and people who have risen above the odds to do great things for themselves and the society.
''We are starting with about 21 categories and everything will be strictly on merit. In a society where values are fast depleting and hardwork, due process and substance are either despised or relished to the background
''OMA LIVING SHOW is set to do all within her capacity to elevate, promote and propagate values. In this MAIDEN EDITION, we will be viewing the S.A.D (suicide, anxiety and depression) campaign documentary and also creating an avenue for entrepreneurs to pitch their ideas directly to investors who are our special guests at the event''.
She advised that the award ceremony is one event anyone could afford to miss. She said they are open to sponsors and partners and that also businesses can advertise themselves at the event. Tickets to this event are very affordable.
The Unsung Heroes' Award is organized and presented by the OMA LIVING SHOW and powered by POSHMARILYN TV (PMTV).

The book and its author
My name is faith,i am a sch dropout,a single mother of two and a HIV positive, this is my story.
"Deception at its best" is a short fictional story.Its a very interesting story with lots of lessons to go home with. The author of this lovely piece Temple Osaze, a young fellow from the University of Petroleum Resources in Nigeria.
My name is faith,I'll be telling you the story of my life. My story goes out to all youth,especially the ladies who think money is everything.
I was born in the year 1996, I am 21years old, a native of Ugbolo a village in Nigeria, I am school dropout,and a single mother of two.
Here goes my story.
In my secondary school days, especially my junior secondary, I never knew anything about love because I just entered the stage of puberty. I finished my JSS3 when I was 15. And during the break I was introduced into masturbation and pornography by my cousin (a guy) who wrote the same exam with me. How it all started.
He was watching pornongraphic movies on his phone with his ear piece on, so I was anxious to know what made him so focus dat he never wanted to show me. One day he left his phone at home and I took the opportunity to look at the things that made him so focus and excited because after every video he watches, he always covers his... With wrapper saying his chemistry is high, I never knew what he meant as I was a dull student in school who never payed attention.
When I opened the videos in his phone, it was something I have never seen before and I was so curious to watch it to the end. There were so many on his phone. It continued like this every time he left his phone at home I became an addict to it.
One day I was so unfortunate, while I was so focus watching the video and touching myself, my cousin came in and saw me, I was so embarrassed that I couldn't move. I rushed to cover myself up but my cousin stopped me, as I refused him touching me, he started telling me lies of how virgins die if once they reach the age of 16 without having sex and so unfortunate to myself I fell for the lies he told. I saw myself been lost to the touches of my cousin, that day I had the first sex of my life, and it was also the beginning of my downfall.
After that day, I never had sex again with anyone because my cousin and his family changed states, making me feel insecure to show my body to another boy except my cousin. I got a phone and filled it with porn and my masturbation increased. In my SS2 (Senior secondary two) days, my friends introduced me to this cute guy, he was hot because of his muscularity and his wealth.
We met and went into a relationship, i told him lots of lies about me and a day came that when he opened my phone and saw all the videos, he confronted me that I had lied to him saying that I was a virgin and an innocent girl.
After knowing the truth, he decided to test me out but I refused saying I don't want to get pregnant because its just 3weeks of our relationship. He showered me with gifts and money, I was lust in his wealth that i didnt take note of his motive behind the actions. A day came and he asked me again for sex, I gave in so easily in order to get more gifts from him. It continued like this for months, sex like twice a week with him. My parents never knew what was happening.
I had my first abortion for him when I was in SS3 and a year later, one of my friends died due to abortion.
And by this time we were through with secondary school.
I got pregnant for him the second time and I refused to abort it because i was scared that I would die like my friend and this made my boyfriend to break up with me. My parents disowned me after they knew about my condition. I was decieved by my bestfriend into living a life of a prostitute to sustain myself. I was 19 at the time I gave birth to my first child.
I met lot of guys who promised to take care of me and my baby, but I refused because they had no money. I was so lust for money and not for love and care because of the experience I had with my first boyfriend, so I met this guy, he was very rich, an oil worker. I lied to him about my identity, saying that I'm an orphan, didn't go to school and I was raped,. He believed and he promised that he will take care of me. I quickly agreed, no time wasting because he was very rich.
Into the first year of our relationship, we were having sex quite all right because I was a sex addict, I was engaged to him but I was still having sex outside because I'm used to it. I got pregnant again but didn't know who had the baby. I told him I was pregnant for him and that I want to remove it, he told that I should keep it and that he will marry me for it.
He kept showering me and my baby with gifts and money, kept me in a beautiful house and even introduced me to his family.Karma fell on me again as I reached his family house.
He's brother used to be my customer when I was a sex worker, so he recognised me and told his brother all about me, he was furious but forgave me after a long while. He was suppose to propose to me. But the marriage proposals was postponed till after I give birth. I never knew he waited in order to know if the baby I was carrying was his. In the ninth month of my pregnancy I gave birth to a beautiful boy,,,and after the naming of the boy, he pretended to be happy, I had forgotten about the whole thing that I did during the time of my sons' conception. One of the days, he came into the house shouting with anger that I should leave his house saying that I'm a slot. So foolish was I that I never knew where his anger came from until I opened the envelope he threw at my face.
In the envelope contained two letters, one was the letter of the result of a DNA test conducted to know if he was the father of my son and the other was the result of a HIV test,,To my greatest surprise and anguish, he was not the father of my baby and he was HIV positive which he got from me. He drove me out of his house with my two children not allowing me to leave with my properties. And that was how I went into street begging all at the age of 21.
So please my fellow girls and youths don't be deceived by anyone to do things which are evil, detrimental and even derail you from your destiny in life.
My name is faith,i am a sch dropout,a single mother of two and a HIV positive, this is my story.

Earlier today, a white man working with the Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC) orders Military personnel attached to him to beat up one Mr. Innocent Okpara over resistance of the electricity company officials to take his expensive wires after disconnection for non payment of electricity bills.
This happened behind Santana Market, Sapele Road, Benin City in the presence of the Business Manager, a Nigerian in charge of the business unit that covers the area. The man has been disconnected for owing the company an amount he said could not be justified, his argument was that, he bought the wires with his money and that it does not belong to the private company hence, he was not going to allow them to take away the expensive wires.
Similar reports have reached the human rights community of the activities in the past of same white men who go about with military personnel to harass, intimidate, humiliate, brutalize and in some cases threaten to shoot citizens of the Federal Republic of Nigeria over electricity issues. Such case was that of one Mr. Owas Evbuomwan about a month ago in Oluku-Iguosa axis who was threatened by military personnel attached to another white man working with BEDC to shoot if he dares question the authority of a white man in threatening a Nigerian like him. It should be noted that there are three of them working with BEDC and they all exhibit the habit of creating fear and tension in the minds of Nigerians thereby making Nigerians look like cowards in their own land.
Reports have been passed to the 4 Mechanized Brigade, Benin City severally on the activities of soldiers who molest and assault citizens and no action have been demonstrated to show there is still value for human rights even in a democratic dispensation like ours. A lot of such incidences are archived with pictorial evidences and victims are readily available to testify of military brutalization and assault on their persons without direct provocation that warrants same.
It is important for Nigerians to still know if our leaders have finally handed over the life and destiny to foreigners or this is another round of colonial rule using our military to achieve.
The Edo Civil Society Organisations will stop at nothing to mobilize all other Nigerians to resist any form of colonial tendencies even if our leaders are docile and non chalant about it. We cannot tolerate it, because Nigerians in the Diaspora cannot try what these white men are daring here.
To this end, we are demanding a full scale investigation into the activities of these white men working with BEDC to the extent that whether they possess such rights in line with our constitution to command our military personnel to unleash terror on citizens. We cannot be slaves in our own land because these white men are here to elk a living for themselves and another round of colonial tendencies we shall resist even with the last drop of our blood. The most stupid Nigerian at least deserves some respects from a foreigner in his land.
We own the Land.
INNOCENT OKPARA DEMANDS JUSTICE FROM THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT, THE HUMILIATION ON HIM BY A FOREIGNER IS TOO MUCH.
WILL THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT ACT?
