The Future Awards Africa launches Nigerian theme for its 11th edition, nominees list released Sunday 4th December

Following the announcement by the Central Working Committee (CWC) for Africa’s biggest youth event The Future Awards Africa (TFAA), the Awards is launching its country model plan with a focus on Nigeria.

This has been a difficult year in Nigeria, but despite the adversity, the youth have risen to the challenge. A new cohort of extraordinary people are defying the odds and paving the way for generations to come. They are the people who will serve as inspiration to the nation. The theme for this year’s awards ‘Shaping the Future’ captures the driving energy of these very accomplished nominees.

Whether it is through expression in arts and culture, or knowledge in science and technology, these are young women and men who have stretched our collective boundaries and made us better as a nation.

“We ask ourselves is Nigeria producing a new breed of heroes? Delivering key players who will shape our future? We are particularly excited about this edition because will be showcasing impressive young people from across Nigeria, who will reflect the breakthroughs the youth have made in different fields,” said Bukonla Adebakin, Project Lead, The Future Project.

“We want to remind everyone of the power of young Nigerian women and men, recognising their efforts. We want to take the time to recognise their hunger, their ability to take the ball in pursuit of purpose and their passion to see a better country, and we hope to get them assembled in formation at the awards,” said Bukunyi Olateru Olagbegi, Head of the CWC.

“On the 4th of December, 2016 at 3:00 pm on Channels TV, these key players shaping Nigeria’s future and Africa’s destiny will be unveiled in a live broadcast of a Rubbin’ Minds television show special,” he continued.

The 11th edition of The Future Awards Africa will hold on Sunday 18th December 2016 in Lagos, Nigeria.
