Coming Saturday on the 15th of June the F.A.C.E list award will take place in New York City, organized by no other than Face2Face Africa. Six Pan-African personalities will be honored because of their hard work and outstanding achievements. It is promising to be a night of glamour, music and celebrating pan-African achievements.
The thing I have noticed that Africans like to give out awards. That makes me question, which ones are honorable awards? However I do consider F.A.C.E list awards as a quality initiative. We’ve written about Face2Face Africa and co-founder Sandra Appiah before and they have proven to be consistent and they represent quality all the way! They hit the market with not just a magazine, but also with business events and awards like the F.A.C.E awards. They make African feel as good as it is! On Saturday night F.A.C.E list awards will be granted to Pan-African personalities coming from the fields of entrepreneurship, service, fashion entertainment, media and leadership. The award ceremony is a red carpet black-tie event. Also, a portion of the proceeds this year will be donated to Raising HOPE Foundation.
The honorees are:
- Dr Carlos Lopes (Leadership)
- Madam Peace Anyiam-Osigwe (Trendsetter)
- George Ntim (Service)
- Korto Momolu (Fashion)
- Aziz G. Adetimirin (Media)
- Jackie Appiah (Entertainment)
Who can forget about Korto Momolu from Project Runway’s with that fabulous presence and designs? That woman can design! I love how Basketball Wives reality star Shaunie O’ Neal wore one of her pieces on the picture below. And Jackie Appiah, which African doesn’t know her? I remember a while back when I was in Atlanta, Georgia, this Eritrean taxi driver emphasized on how sexy he finds her. Mrs. Appiah has leashed a seductive touch on some. And it’s no surprise. She is a gorge!
