Ameyaw Debrah, Berla Mundi, Davido, Wizkid and Sarkodie make list for 2017 Influential Young Africans

In its vision of recognising young achievers across the African continent, Africa Youth Awards has released its 2nd annual list of the 2017 100 Most Influential Young Africans.

The initiative has participation from over 140 countries globally.

Speaking about the list, Prince Akpah, President of Africa Youth Awards noted the exceptionality of this year’s list which he said has “an unprecedented gender representation of 45 women and 55 men, which he noted as a great move to inspire more young women in Africa and across the world to reach out for their dreams”.

He said the list was restricted to age limits between 15 and 36 and covered 28 countries on the continent with Nigeria, South Africa, Ghana and Kenya leading with 19, 18, 10, 7 representatives respectively.

The list, compiled and approved by the awards jury, was made up of young Africans from across the globe after public nominations were received and reviewed.

The profiles of all 100 nominees were organised and published on www.africayouthawards.org in partnership with Avance Media, My Naija Naira, Dream Ambassadors Foundation GH, Global Skills Exchange, WatsUp TV, www.collegeinghana.com, All for Development and Lead Africa with the support of various media organisations across the continent.
