Flashback to last year’s event
GAB Award Comes Alive As Africa’s Best Gathers In London East-The annual Gathering of Africa’s Best Awards (GAB Awards) held yearly to celebrate the best of black and African race will hold on Sunday as organisers round up preparation for this year’s edition in grand style.
The 16th edition of the annual Awards comes up in London on November 16, 2014 at the exclusive Showcase Cinemas Newham, Jenkins Lane, Barking.
Organisers once again have listed many lucky recipients who had been nominated for the coveted award with more confidence that once again, the choice of the people will beat the imaginations of many who had written in they should avoid honouring those who had betrayed Africa and Africans to be listed among this year’s winners.
According to the Chief Executive of GAD Award, Mr Femi Okutubo,: ” We are not blind to reality and GAB Awards have always moved beyond eye service to be the most credible and respected of all Awards in the UK and beyond due to its strict stance on the choice of nominated recipients”.
Among the sent in opinion to the Award committee by a faithful fan was that the organisers should avoid self centered politicians who may want to use the platform of GAB to grab fame because of the coming Nigeria’s election early next year.
Mr Okutubo emphasized that the joy of GAB Award is that its choice of nominees exceeds the projected African Borders and this created its strict stance as many from outside the continent of Africa constitute major advisers and are always taking part in the screening process.
Many non-Africans who had demonstrated their interests and commitment to the causes of black race life enhancement and African cultural values promotion in the past years had been celebrated by GAB as they had been awarded for their good deeds.
Many of those who had won the awards in the past were eminent personalities within Africa’s political, economic, social, sport and entertainment World and who had impacted on the life of Africans either in Africa or in the Diaspora.
The success of the award had given birth to many others who have emulated Mr Okutubo’s vision of Africa and African’s celebration. Among this year’s nominee is Dr Ahmed Nazir, a Pakistan origin who in the past years had influenced many African Children in securing admission into best Universities across the World and still rewards hundreds of Africans with money and professional training to encourage them to get the best result in preparation for higher institution admission. Among his students are the Imafidon sisters who prominently feature on Dr Nazir’s record as special gifted children.
At least three members of Imafidon clan were students at the educationalist’s Best Tutors private education Center, situated in Edmonton,North London. Many more Nigerians are testifying on how he had influenced them in gaining admission to the best Universities across the World.
GAB Award is an off-shoot of The Trumpet Newspapers which was founded in 1999.
It is Britain’s Africans’ largest distributed newspaper, established to promote the image of Africa and Africans amid deliberate soiling of Africa’s image by the mainstream media in United Kingdom and the entire Western World.
Since its establishment 16 years ago, GAB Award has showcased Africa’s Best in all areas of human endeavour and has rewarded those who are icons of positive change within the African community in both African continent and beyond rewarding their efforts through recognition and celebration.
According to Mr Okutubo, this year’s celebration will hold on Sunday 16 November 2014 at Showcase Cinemas Newham, Jenkins Lane, Barking, ESSEX IG11 0AD in the United Kingdom between 5pm and 11.30pm. Past GAB Awards events have attracted the support and presence of numerous African missions and their Heads, Royalties, celebrities from both entertainment, sports, political and business world.
In 2007, the GAB Awards was celebrated as one of the programmes of the Mayor of London’s Black History Month.
