Organised annually by Alln1 Productions Inc., the award honours individuals or groups who have given their time and resources to help Africans all over the world, especially Africans on the mother continent, Africans in Diaspora, and African-Americans.
Since 2016, the awards-ceremony have made every effort to honour those groups’ distinct cultures, and sought to bring all Africans together in celebration of remarkable acts of service that foster a stronger sense of community togetherness and connection.
According to the organisers, they “hope to unite all Africans in celebration of great acts of service and build a greater sense of unity and connection within the community”
The Red carpet anchored by Fatima Sesay for this year’s event will begin at 4:30 pm (Eastern Standard Time), and the event will proceed until 8:00 pm. The ceremony will be hosted by Remi Momodu, a U.S based Nigerian film producer, registered nurse, actress, writer & humanitarian. It will be co-hosted by MC Chaz.
