Have you met Africa? Jason Njoku leads campaign for The Future Africa Awards 2014

The Central Working Committee for The Future Africa Awards & Summit(TFAAS) 2014 has just recently announced the media campaign for 2014.

The campaign is themed #ThisIsAfrica, and is led by five of Africa’s brightest young leaders: actress and activist Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde (Nigeria); serial entrepreneur Ashish J. Thakkar Uganda), iROKO founder Jason Njoku (Nigeria), water advocate Saran Kaba Jones (Liberia) and Red Media Africa co-founder Chude Jideonwo (Nigeria).

This follows the awards’ successful engagements annually over the past nine years including the viral ‘i am the future’ and ‘I represent Naija’ campaigns.

The 2014 edition was launched last week during the World Economic Forum on Africa, and has also been expanded to The Future Africa Awards & Summit, a 2-day ideas-fest, where the continent’s most influential leaders and institutions with portfolios on youth will gather to chart immediate action-points for expansion of jobs and opportunities, as well as good governance and citizen engagement.
