According to the organisers of the awards, “DIYMA recognises outstanding crafts and celebrates same as the opportunity presents itself.

Speaking further, the CEOs challenged the Yoruba indigenous filmmakers to do more in promoting the indigenous language film because language is critical to cultural identity. “On our part, we shall continue to support the Yoruba film industry in our little way. We believe strongly in the industry. We understand that promoting our language is key to preserving our culture. And our culture is the only undisputable commodity we can sell to the world’s admiration.”
