Mavin Records’ boss, Don Jazzy has been announced as one of the ambassadors for Africa’s biggest youth event, The Future Awards Africa. The multiple award-winning music producer was named alongside Asa, Tara Fela Durotoye, Ndidi Nwuneli, Nnaemeka Ikeguonu, Sangu Delle, Patrick Ngowi, Diamond Platinumz, Fogblanbenchi Lily Harity and Oramait Alengoil as the faces of the event. This is to mark the 10th anniversary of the ceremony. According to a member of the awards’ Central Working Committee based in Ghana, Sean Obedih, these 10 ambassadors were “selected from across East, West and Southern Africa because they represent the essence of TFAA.” “They speak to the best that Africa has, but more importantly their lives work have inspired millions to take charge of their destinies and to get involved in rebuilding their communities and their countries. There are no better ambassadors than these to drive our #AfricaNeedsYou message as we celebrate 10 years of the awards and prepare for 10 more years of impact,” Obedih added. The ambassadors will drive the 10th year anniversary campaign for the awards across TV, radio, online and through targeted events targeted at galvanizing the global TFAA brain trust to solve problems across Africa. “The question we are driving people to answer is very simple,” says singer Asa. “If Africa is rising and GDPs are growing then why are so many young Africans still desperately leaving Africa?” As part of the 10th anniversary #AfricaNeedsYou campaign, TFAA launched a 100-city tour to build 100 hubs across the continent over the next one year. The hubs will partner with local non-governmental organisations to solve problems community by community. It will be launched officially at the awards on December 6, 2015.
