The 10th anniversary of the Future Awards Africa 2015 has come and gone, and Africa’s finest entrepreneurial  trailblazers were celebrated last night, December 6th, 2015 , at the Intercontinental hotel , Lagos. The style on the red carpet was hugely influenced by  African fashion trends, because  predominantly all of the invited guests and nominees were styled by a plethora of African fashion brands, which is highly commendable , as events such as these, empower the next generation of African entrepreneurs and change agents , which is specifically what the Future Awards is about; celebrating Africa’s young business owners, who shatter  the proverbial  glass ceiling and create jobs for themselves. The Future Nigeria project was founded by Chude Jideonwo and Adebola Williams of Red Media . If you recall, we reported that their media team was responsible for President Buhari’s social media campaign strategy, which encouraged the young adult demographic to vote for ‘Change’, read here . The awards ceremony was hosted by South Africa’s Bonang Matheba and Nigeria’s Dare Art Alade.
