The Future Awards Africa recently recognised 20 Africans out of 100 nominated, on Sunday, December 18th, at the Federal Palace Hotel.
Though the event started late, and all of the pressmen and guests had to stay outside the hall to enjoy the black carpet, finger food and drinks, and the photobooth (I regret that i forgot to use the photobooth though.)
But i had fun with the #TosynCam - Check @tosynsblog out on instagram for all of the pictures (and follow.)
The event started, Yes! It did. And, Mocheddah, Dj Obi, Shola Fapson and Wole Ojo were the hosts.
In attendance at the Future Awards were; Vimbai, Lamide Akintobi, Eunice Omole, Kiki, Mannie, Mimi Onalaja, Maraji, Tosin Odunfa to name a few.
President-elect of the Republic of Ghana, Dr. Nana Akufo-Addo was present and he gave a very long keynote speech at the event.
Falana, Simi, Lala Akindoju, Timi Dakolo and Davido all performed.
It was one great night of celebrating hope of Africa. And i can't wait for the 12th edition next year.

Yes o! All roads led to Federal Palace Hotel on Sunday, December 11th, for the legend, King Sunny Ade's Sunny on Sunday concert; a concert that was the grand "wrap-up" concert for the month long celebration of KSA's 70th birthday.
Before I s.h.a.r.e details of my "wawu" highlight of the night ( KSA's Fender Guitar that was auctioned for N52.1million ), let me share highlights of my moments on the red carpet.
I had the #TosynCam so first thing i did was let celebrity guests take #TosynCamSelfies. Check them out via @TosynsBlog on Instagram.
From Cool DJ Jimmy Jatt to quirky Lala Akindoju; from the selfie Queen, Toke Makinwa to Mimi Onalaja, Debola Williams, Darey, Iyanya and Emma Nyra.
The Sunny on Sunday concert had two fun zones - The Temple Balmoral Hall were the main event happened and the VVIP lounge where multi-instrumentalist Ed Izycs serenaded the guests.
Now, to my highlight - the starting bid price for the Fender Guitar was N9million and the bidding got up to N52.1million when an unidentified individual made the final bid.
KSA's glittering Fender guitar was designed by Nigerian visual artist,writer and photogragher Victor Ehikhamenor and the auction was handled by Dr. Jogun Onabanjo, a certified auctioneer.
The event was hosted by actress Funke Akindele, OAP Lolo of wazobia Fm and comedian, Tee A. Artistes who performed were Tiwa Savage, Onyeka Onwenu, Sir Shina Peters, Niniola, Iyanya, Terry Apala, Darey and Awilo Logomba.
For today's 'one three ways' feature, i am talking about my #unitedcoloursofbenetton top.
Getting a top that can be styled in different ways and with multiple colours is always a great idea. You can wear it for years and make it look different each time.
My first instinct with this top as shown in Picture 1 and 4, is to accessorise with contrasts to make it even brighter. The secret is to tone down in other areas.
AND, you may not be able to see it properly here, in picture 1, i actually wore the top the wrong way (on purpose o) with the front to the back.
As for the middle pictures, i went with navy blue / a shade of purple because while not as bright, they still give a good contrast.
As always, i love my hats or scarves.
I'm still going to try this with black. I think that will be pretty cool too.
