- as it secures hosting rights from Xodus Communications
Xodus Communications Limited has officially granted the license and the hosting right to Black and White Attorney’s in South Africa to host the 2023 edition of the Forty Under 40 Africa Awards.
The agreement, which was announced in a press conference held at the Royal Baeng Residence in the Limpopo Province in South Africa, saw distinguished dignitaries like the Queen Mother of the Bjatladi Tribal Authority – Veronicah Mamabolo, MEC of Limpopo Province Department of Sports, Arts and Culture – Thandi Morakaand, Events Director of Xodus Communications – Richard Abbey Junior from Accra – Ghana, ‘the rightful owners of the Forty Under 40 Africa’.
The Awards scheme, which is estimated to raise about US$1million in revenue to the country seeks to identify, honour and celebrate a cross- section of the continent’s most influential and accomplished young business leaders under the age of forty from a wide range of industries.
Speaking at the media briefing session, President of BW Attorney’s, Nakedi Malahlela, express delight to officially giving the mandate to commence an obligatory process that seeks to entrench unity within the African continent.
According to him, the privilege will also allow South Africa to reclaim its top spot as a ‘Mecca of Events ‘ on the African continent.
“As you all know, we have just returned from Ghana, where we earned the Forty Under 40 Africa Award, within the Sports Category for our work of establishing the Turfloop ’95 Brand’. It gives a great sense of pleasure to announce that BW Attorney’s, an entity that belongs to the House of Troika Alliance, and the Financial Muscle behind Turfloop ’95, has been granted the right to host the 2023 edition of the Forty Under 40 Africa Awards,” he said.
Meanwhile, Executive Director of Xodus Communications, Richard Abbey Junior, added that the 2023 edition will be unique in its own ways because it will come with a lot of attractive incentives to motivate nominees and winners.
“The uniqueness of the 2023 edition is that, it will be a five-day event comprising tourism at the safari, entrepreneurs conference, exhibition, and climaxed with awards night,” he added.
The maiden edition of the Forty Under 40 Africa awards, which was held on March 26, 2022, at the Kempinski Gold Coast Hotel in Accra – Ghana, was attended by dignitaries from about 16 African countries with about 65 nominees.
The event was organised by Xodus Communications in partnership with the Ministry of Youth and Sports in Ghana, and the Ministry of Arts and Culture. The awards target people committed to business growth, professional excellence and community service.
