This year began on a brilliant note with strong notification sent by women to the entire world that, it’s time for the voices of women everywhere to be held. Yes! the world accepted and bought into the idea but, has women on the continent regarded as the darker one given the same opportunity as women elsewhere?

It will be for the good of every woman on the continent to stand for themselves first before others can join, women need to be each other’s keeper. With that said, Women4Africa 2018 honoured black women around the globe with Africa being the focal point on Saturday, May 19, 2018, in Kensington, Central London.

Women4Africa 2018 received the caption of ‘Royalty’ due to the biggest wedding between Prince Harry and Megha Markle, therefore, it is only right to add a bit of prestige to the award this year. Organizers went with the sub-headline ‘The Royal Wedding’ and its lived to it, the show had guests from countries like South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana, The Caribbean, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe, DRC Congo, Ireland, Denmark, Germany, The USA.

Executive Director Kathi Scott of ‘Nelson Mandela’s children’s Fund UK’ was present as the Women4Africa 2018 has chosen the fund for this year. There were performances from the popular comedian – Funmbi, dance – Princess K & Dem3Official, music – YFS and Idowu Eyin, and the entire evening was hosted by our chief editor – Afua Adom.
