This year’s theme is “Activating The General Well-being of African Communities” which is in tardem with the AU 2063 Agenda and UNSDGs.
“Starting from Accra, Ghana, in 2019, we thought it wise on our side at Kalo Africa Media to recognise our unsung heroes especially at our local communities. Ever since, we never relented, even during the Covid-19 period, and this year we want to go virtual to honour many of our African Champions doing us great”, said Kazeem Balogun, the Project Cordinator and Founder.
