7 years into a new decade where Africa was labeled the “Rising Continent”, it still remains very unclear to many why Africa matters. A plethora of issues continues to prevent the continent from realizing its full potential.
The FACE List Awards, organized by Face2face Africa, is an annual celebration of pan-African achievement where African pioneers and influential people who are impacting the pan-African community are honored for their work and contributions.
Often times, the honorees use the platform to highlight important issues in Africa in an effort to mobilize support and encourage action. Last year’s honorees, Wyclef Jean, Rosa Whitaker, Marcus Samuelsson, Wale Adeosun, and Venessa De Luca did not shy away from that.
