The 2011 edition of The Future Awards held today, 30 January at Landmark Village, Oniru Estate, Victoria Island, and the event lived up to everyone’s expectations as Africa’s largest youth event. The highly anticipated event turned out to be a night of high glamour and excitement as Nigeria’s most remarkable young people were celebrated.

In trademark style, the event kicked off with a powerful rendition of the national anthem by Segun Obe, Ego, Essence and ChiDynma. The hosts of the night, Silverbird’s Yvonne ‘Vixen’ Ekwere and Ebuka Obi-Uchendu expertly anchored the first half of the show, handing over to a dapper duo – Studio 53’s Dolapo Oni and Dr Sid of Mo’ Hits Records.

Upcoming female group Chase, gave the first performance of the night, and Lara George, Subomi, Sound Sultan, M.I and IcePrince followed, each warming the crowd more and more as the night went on.

In line with the theme for Season 6 of The Future Awards, ‘I Am Naija’, Chude Jideonwo, the Managing Director of RedSTRAT Communications (the owners The Future Awards) delivered a passionate speech titled No more excuses, let’s save Nigeria”(Read the speech here Speech TFA 2011 by Chude-2) and with another inspiring address from Keynote Speaker Dr Olusegun Aganga, and special appearances from ‘Salewa’ of Tinsel, IK Osakioduwa, Genevieve Nnaji, Jedi and Tiwa Savage among other celebrities, The Future Awards was certainly a night to remember.
