The South African High Commissioner to Ghana, Grace Jeanet Mason, has pledged the Commission’s full support to the 2023 edition of the FortyUnder40 Africa Awards which will be held in Cape Town, South Africa.

Xodus Communications Limited, initiator of the awards scheme, in May 2022 officially granted the licence and hosting rights to Black and White Attorney’s in South Africa during a press conference ceremony held at the Royal Baeng Residence in the Limpopo Province.

Speaking at a courtesy call by the Chief Executive Officer of Xodus Communications, Richard Abbey Jnr, Ms. Mason said her outfit will support this pan-African idea of celebrating young achievers on the continent.

She advised that the event should be used as a tool to promote culture and tourism in South Africa. “I am very honoured to see an entity in my province and country granted the licence and rights to host the second edition of FortyUnder40 Africa,” she said.

Ms. Mason took the opportunity to thank Xodus Communications Limited for such a wonderful initiative to encourage, empower and celebrate influential young businessmen and women on the continent. She called on young business leaders under the age of forty to participate in the 2023 edition to experience South Africa.

Meanwhile, Mr. Abbey appreciated the warm reception by the Commissioner and her team in pledging their full support toward the event. “The uniqueness of the 2023 edition is that it will be a five-day event comprising tourism at the safari, live (walk with the lions), entrepreneurs’ business summit and exhibition in Pretoria and Gauteng, and will finally be climaxed with an awards night in Cape Town,” he added.

The FortyUnder40 Africa Award scheme 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.
