The Central Working Committee of The Future Awards Africa has announced that the list of nominees for the 16th edition will be unveiled on Sunday, February 6, 2022, by 3 pm on Channels Television, Hip TV and Wazobia TV.
The announcement will be made live in a special broadcast across the select stations and would be hosted by popular multi-award-winning broadcaster, actress, model, and TFAA alumnus, Simi Drey.
Themed “Celebrating Challengers and Builders”, the 16th edition of the Awards will celebrate young people who have challenged the status quo in their respective spheres of influence and have worked to build lifelong legacies that will transform generations for years to come.
Speaking on the announcement, Bukonla Adebakin, Senior Advisor, The Future Project, said, “Every edition of the awards has highlighted the achievements of young people who have made giant strides in their fields. This year, we would be spotlighting other young people who have not only questioned the norm but have gone on to redefine it.”
“We have a spectacular list of young people nominated across different categories; from community action to fashion to music, movies amongst others. It is an honour to bring some of Africa’s trailblazers to the limelight, and we wish them all the best on their journey to the star prize,” she concluded.
