Liberian music: Joemade Scott Talks First Liberian Entertainment Awards Experience

 
Liberian blogger Joemade Scott
Every year, Liberian Entertainment Awards (LEA) receives tremendous amount of criticism, but that has not stop the LEA from seen new faces every year. This year, a new wave of Liberian entertainers were in the building for the first time, including Joemade Scott, Lydia Freeman, Benita Urey, Michelle Doe, Roda Scarlett, and many more. We spend some time with Joemade, getting to know a little about her first LEA experience. Check out her words below. 
It was my first time experiencing the award ceremony segment of the LEA. I was that individual who only went to the after party.


Initially I was impressed by the hard work and teamwork that was going on behind the scenes when I showed up for rehearsal. The LEA staff was professional, courteous and knowledgeable.
I was also impressed that they provided a customer service hotline for any questions. And the icing on the cake for me was the valet service at the award ceremony. I was concerned about walking the streets of DC in my heels and dress after finding parking. The LEA took that stress away and they won my heart after that.
The award ceremony itself was very much exciting and engaging. So many instances I found myself getting out of my seat and dancing or cheering. Lortonio and Young Muse were the two performances that stuck out to me.
 Also was proud to witness the honoring of our living legend Fatu Gayflor. It’s important that we look back, recognize and honor those who came before and paved the way for us. That was special.
 Overall I would gave it a solid B plus. Not an A simply because there’s room for improvement with time management. The show had to be cut short due to poor time management.
