As nominations for season 9 have begun in earnest, The Future Africa Awards launches its series of campaign in style - #IamAfrica.


In eight years, The Future Africa Awards has built a strong reputation as a credible and relevant awards event for young Africans. This season is set to be most exciting yet! The #IamAfrica campaign is unveiled with our trail blazers Alumni who will be ambassadors. They include Actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Young Business Mogul, Ashish J. Thakkar, Tech Sauvy, Jason Njoku, Clean water Advocate, Saran Kaba Jones and Executive Director, The Future Project, Chude Jideonwo.

“Through the successes of ‘I am the Future’, ‘I represent Naija’ and other campaigns that have ran in previous years, we believe that the #IamAfrica campaign will lead the change to restore hope in Africa despite the challenges we face as young people. It’s cool to be African and in Africa everything is doable” said Chude Jideonwo, Executive Director, The Future Africa Awards.
