Winner of the “Blogger of the Year” Award at the Women4Africa Awards

I am glad to share that I have won the ”Blogger of the Year” award at the Women4Africa Awards. The awards, which took place on 18 May 2013, was described as “the most honourable event for African’s by Africans ever in the UK”. Another attendee said “No organisation in Europe has ever created a platform to celebrate African Women, so Women4Africa is the first of its kind”

Nominations came in from 34 African countries and shortlisted finalists from 20 countries.

I was honoured to be nominated alongside fabulous African bloggers and to win this award is an encouragement and a great source of motivation. As mentioned when receiving the ADA award earlier this month, I remain dedicated to bringing to the forefront the voices – ideas, concerns, triumphs, icons, politics, trends – of women of African heritage.

Thanks for your continued support.
