Also on the stage at the awards will be pop culture icons including actresses, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Genevieve Nnaji, musician, Banky W and top designer, LanreDa Silva Ajayi,” said designer Ohimai Atafo, who is Chair of the Central Working Committee for the awards. “They will be driving the content of the awards through calls to action and award presentations.”
