Liberian Entertainment Awards CEO Tarkus Zonen Apologizes

Liberian Entertainment Awards celebrated its first major milestone, its 10th Anniversary, last weekend, March 10, 2018.  The expectation for a grand event from the event goers were so high, but the reality was far from the dream.  Tarkus Zonen, the CEO of the LEA, took to social media to apologize and encourage LEA loyal attendees. Check out his words below: 

In these times of uncertainties and economic crisis, we want to thank you all for your continuous support in recognizing our very own Liberians as they excel in Music, Movies, Fashion, and Services.
We’d like to, again, congratulate all of our nominees, winners, and performers and ask that you continue to highlight Liberian Excellence. Thanks to our hosts, Jimmy Dee and Lisa Togbah for such an amazing job. Also thanks to our presenters, the LEA Academy, Jersey International, sponsors, contractors, consultants and volunteers.
It’s always a challenge to perfectly blend the elements of the red carpet, performances, production and the Liberian Experience. And often, you hear about the negatives. And we apologize for all short comings and take full ownership. However, there’s a undying desire to enhance the LEA Experience and get things right.
As you may know, the most important factor in any relationship is listening. And we truly appreciate all the creative feedbacks from the weekend and they will indeed be implemented. Our goal as always, is to make the Liberian Entertainment Awards an event every Liberian can be proud of. We also invite others to join us in enhancing the LEA Experience.
We promise next year’s ceremony will bring forth the very best Liberia has to offer. See you all March 2019 for another edition of The LEA.
