Outstanding Change Agents In Africa For Honours @ Africa Illustrious Awards


Preparations are now in top gear for the 2023 Africa Illustrious Awards, slated for October 13, 2023, at Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria.

The Award, instituted five years ago, has consistently and painstakingly identified as well as recognised Africans who are making just a little more effort; those going the extra mile through their extraordinary skills and efforts, to move their community forward.

These include those doing little things, that have profound impact on their communities.

Several Africans from every parts of the continent, had been honoured in the past, and this edition is nothing short of a five-year-old tradition of seeking out the best of Africa, for continental recognition.

In the previous editions of the Award, many prominent Africans including Prof. Patrick Lumumba, had been recognised for extraordinary Afrocentric ideas that are shaping the continent for good.

Honoured also, are former Nigerian President, Dr, Goodluck Jonathan who is the peace Ambassador of all time, Dr Absalom Dlamini former Prime Minister of Eswatini, Prof. Monique Ekpong former Ambassador of Nigeria to Angola, and Dr. Alfred Mutua former Governor of the Machakos County in Kenya.

Other recipients like Prof. Charles Esimone have also been recognised for exceptional university administration.

In sports, Chioma Ajunwa, Joseph Yobo, and John Ogu, among others had been recognised.

Similarly, many iconic political leaders across Africa had also been recognised.

The Africa Illustrious Award has diverse categories for an all-inclusive recognition of individuals and organisations, that are paying real prices for the little drops of events that fan the wheels of Africa’s development and progress.

This year, like in previous years, Africa Illustrious Award will be honouring men and women of African descent, whose works have remarkable bearing on the fortunes of their communitied. Some Africans have been distinguished in their various contributions to community development, in the area of sports, political leadership, business and entrepreneurship.

Others in technology invention and innovation, agriculture, academia, and personal character.

The whole idea is to create a chain of good and acceptable quality service across Africa, through the personal examples shown by the award recipients.

The organisers disclosed that some impactful organisations would also be honoured this year.
