This special category of the annual awards ceremony is expected to be the high point of this year’s celebration.  The presentation of African Voice leadership awards to this year’s exceptionally deserving recipients aims to encourage African leaders to build a stable continent where citizens are gainfully employed and the rush for greener pastures in Europe will be arrested.

While AIi Nuhu will be honoured for his outstanding role as a Hausa actor and as an inspiration to youth to seek careers in the industry. Ali has made a successful crossover to Nollywood with movies like SITANDA and LAST FLIGHT TO ABUJA.

Africa’s most prestigious film awards is celebrating an industry that is attracting global attention and uniting diverse communities here in the United Kingdom. The gala is expected to be attended byAfrican diplomats, British politicians and business leaders based here and overseas. 

Prince Mike Abiola, who founded the awards, says: “The awards from inception were intended to promote inclusiveness and cross-border collaboration among film practitioners.

“This year’s celebration is centred on the achievement of Nollywood as it embraces the power of digital motion pictures to deliver messages for the effective transformation of society.  

“The awards ceremony promises to be an evening of glamour, corporate networking and rib-cracking comedy to de-stress and refresh hard working entrepreneurs. The event has a dedicated following of leading business executives and the crème de la crème of Britain’s diverse community.

“Friday 13 November is expected to record the biggest concentration of African film industry practitioners, investors and entrepreneurs under one roof to support an industry that is depending on the creative ingenuity of talented people to contribute to the economy without a legislative framework or infrastructural support.


Editor’s note:

  1.  Nollywood, the fastest growing film industry in Africa, is attracting global attention and uniting diverse communities in the United Kingdom. It provides a great platform to project the rising profile of Africa to its Diaspora.
  2. The African Voice Leadership Awards recognises African leaders who have shown dedication to developing their nations by improving the welfare of the people and investing in infrastructure for sustainable development.
  3. African Voice is Britain’s No.1 African Newspaper. First published in September 2001, African Voice identified a growing population of new generation Africans in Diaspora who were dissatisfied with the mainstream media and how news was delivered to them; a generation of Africans wanting to read an African perspective to breaking news.  

African Voice informs and educates its readers about issues in their     community, the Diaspora and Africa as a whole. The paper acknowledges and celebrates the contributions made by Africans in Britain by providing breaking news and informative features, thereby providing a balanced view on Africa to readers.
