The 2015 African Achievers Awards will honour two of Nigeria’s finest performers, actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and comedian Ali Baba.
At the July 25 event scheduled to hold in Johannesburg, South Africa, the duo will be honoured for their outstanding contributions to transforming the entertainment industries in Nigeria and on the continent.
Rex Idaminabo, on behalf of AAA said, “While Omotala’s zeal and consistency created the needed breakthrough for Nollywood to thrive, Ali Baba took the comedy business to a different level in the country. Both Omotola and Ali Baba created a path for others to follow. They showed other artists the desired paths, and today, entertainment has become one of the main industries in Nigeria and in Africa that pays more people than any other industry.“
