The Bellafricana ACE Awards 2017 day was marked and Nigeria remains breath-taking following the first and spectacular launch of Bellafricana ACE Awards 2017 which took place on the 17th of April, 2017 at D-Venue, Water Corporation Drive, Off Ligali Ayorinde, Lagos, Nigeria.
You can almost still feel the excitement in the air resonating from the crowds on the day to witness this laudable event, the first of its kind in Nigeria and the whole of Africa.
My eaves dropped at dinner last night and I heard someone ask “Why buy Nigerian?” with the main bone of contention being the quality of made in Nigeria products.
If you ask me, (even if you don’t I’d still tell you anyway) the concern of quality particularly is a little bit played out. Nigerians are not only becoming more innovative; most are also paying supreme attention to detail and quality.
In continuation of the role it plays in promoting Made-in-Nigeria quality products in the Nigerian economy by helping as many quality creative small businesses be at the forefront of the market, Bellafricana.com has also launched African Creative Exhibition and Awards (ACE Awards) to encourage those engaged in creating richer platforms.
The Founder, Bukky Asehinde, wonders, “Why should we wait on financial backing from the government and big institutions to help this industry? When we can create a platform to connect these Afrocentric businesses, they are maximising raw materials in Nigeria (Africa), providing employment for local talents within the country and creating wealth for the Nation”.
The complete list of Bellafricana ACE Awards nominees have been released and it is with great pleasure to see that well deserving brands made it on…
Adding value and creating impact is a noble cause that should be awarded. This by no means undermines or belittles the efforts of the brands that weren’t nominated, far from it.
The management of Bellafricana is officially announcing their first edition of Bellafricana African Creative Exhibition and Awards coming up on the 17th of April, 2017. This Annual Creative Exhibition and Award (termed Bellafricana ACE Awards) is fully endorsed by Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC), Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), the Nigerian-British Chamber of Commerce (NBCC), Nigerian-American Chamber of Commerce (NACC) and the Nigeria Britain Association.

Most natural hair girls aka naturalistas, especially the sistas (hehe…) with stubborn and brittle 4C type hair, know that the simple act of running a comb through it is a proper STRUGGLE!
I hear the permed ladies whisper “so why do you put yourselves through the stress of 2 strand twists, bantu knots, silk scarves, breaking combs etc. Why don’t you just save yourselves undue pressure and relax those curls huh?”
Adire textile, pronounced as Ah-DEE-reh is an age old indigo die textile indigenous to the Yoruba tribe of the Southwestern Nigeria. This textile is rich in beauty and culture as much as it has a rich history.
