With the theme ‘Honouring Beacons of Excellence and Inspiration,’ the event paid homage to remarkable individuals who have made an enduring impact on the global African diaspora.
The prestigious event saw the presence of notable figures such as the three-time Grammy Award-winning singer Angélique Kidjo, acclaimed Ghanaian actress Ama K Abebrese, visionary business founder Anthony Dzamefe, TV presenter, author and ex-BBC diversity lead June Sarpong, Afrobeats pioneer DJ Abrantee and the dynamic hip-hop/Afrobeat musician D-Black.
Anita Erskine, the talented Ghanaian media personality and actress, teamed up with the renowned relationship expert and television host Paul Carrick Brunson to host this year’s event.
Taking a moment to ponder the expansion and international impact of the GUBA Awards, Lady Dentaa Amoateng MBE, the visionary behind the prestigious event, remarked:
Over the past thirteen years, the GUBA Awards has grown immensely, expanding across three continents. It was fantastic to be back in London honouring these incredible winners who are truly inspirational individuals and role models.
We seek to reward and celebrate the excellence and innovation of African individuals and organisations throughout the diaspora that work towards the advancement, empowerment and progression of the African community.
It is a delight to see this come to life with the worldwide popularity of African exports in entertainment and business, proving Africa to be a cultural and economic powerhouse.Lady Dentaa Amoateng MBE, founder of the GUBA Awards.
