The Importance of recognising and appreciating the efforts & contributions of Africans to the improvement of their continent cannot be grossly undermined. This is because, it not only opens up opportunities for more from the contributors, but also serve as motivation for others to do the same.
It is certainly with much pleasure that i've taken up the opportunity to write about the African Achievers Award 2014 edition which took place at the Presidential Banquet Hall, Accra, Ghana on the 28th February, 2014.
The event which kick-started with an opening glee of Ghana's national anthem had
no dull moment as different African acts treated the high profile guests at the
event to some awe inspiring performances.
Also memorable was the superlative show put up by Bloomberg Tv personality,
Savannah Nightingale and ‘Nigeria’s Got Talent Host’ Andrea Blaze Henshaw who
anchored the award ceremony.
They kept the audience smiling all through the award ceremony.
Quite remarkable were the various awards bestowed on some Africans who through their outstanding performances in varying endeavours have written their names in the sand of history.
The criteria leading to the qualification of an African for the award was however spelt out by Ambassador David James Egwu when he presented the organizers speech on behalf of the Principal partner, Tonye Rex Idaminabo.
