Permit us to borrow a leaf from a popular kiddies rhyme “this little light of mine, am gonna let it shine”. The Akwa –Cross entertainment industry is our little light, which we (Soulminds Entertainment) are committed to keeping its shine and brightness. One of the ways we hope to achieve this is through NTANTA AWARDS, which is aimed at celebrating and encouraging players in the Akwa-Cross entertainment industry.

If people in other parts of the country see us (Akwa Ibom and Cross River States) as one, this should be of great advantage to us as a people, in building, promoting and showcasing our arts, artistes, culture through entertainment. Just like our contemporaries in the Yoruba, Hausa, Swahili entertainment industries have done, which paid off greatly in the just concluded Africa magic Multi choice viewers awards.

Uyai Mariatherese Rogers – CEO Soulminds Entertainment
Man’s well being depends on so many factors including his social life. If his social life is not included in his day to day activities, then his health, job, family and other interests are at risk because all work and no play makes Okon a dull boy.

In order to be efficient and productive at work, he needs to strike a balance between work and play which is the reason, artistes and entertainers are a set of people whether educated or not, use their talents and creativity to help us balance and relax our mindsets with their music, movies, TV/Radio Shows, Dance, Comedy etc.

In this context Soulminds entertainment is packaging Ntanta Awards to reposition the Akwa-Cross entertainment industry and further contribute positively to the growth of the entertainment industry in the south-south region and Nigeria at large.

Soulminds Entertainment is made of people of like minds with great interest and passion for entertainment and their states (origin). We hope to use this company (Soulminds Entertainment) to contribute positively to the growth of the Entertainment industry in Nigeria.


  • To celebrate achievers in the Akwa-Cross entertainment industry
  • To foster the unity that exists between Akwa Ibom and Cross River States.
  • To serve as a wake up call to every player in the entertainment arena, of Akwa –Cross Origin to come and build the Akwa-Cross entertainment industry wish their wealth of experience and professionalism.
