The recently concluded GAGE Awards 2021 was historical as top influencers, comedians, fintechs, and stars of Internet Africa gathered virtually to celebrate the great feats achieved by individuals and brands who have made great impacts in the lives of people in Africa and across continents.

Speaking on the impact and relevance of the Awards, Convener of the GAGE Awards, Mr Johnson Anorh said; ‍”The GAGE Awards relevance in helping to drive innovation and growth in the Digital Economy as we now know it, has become ever so obvious.

“The whole world was in a pandemic induced lockdown and we saw how we depended on the digital space to continue to drive the economy and maintain some level of sanity. It was like we fast tracked into the future,especially in this part of the world.”

Hosted by former BBNaija star Bisola, the GAGE Awards night also had cameo appearances from top entertainers such as Comedian Damola, JOSH2Funny, BKB the Magician, Badboy Timz, and teenage sensation Batya Anorh who serenaded the audience with her amazing sound.

Anorh explained: “What we have done is to spotlight businesses, organisations and individuals who were innovative in the use of technology to solve different problems,especially within the last year.

Problems as diverse as commerce, social interaction and mental health. So we have categories that cover Fintech, Marketing, Entertainment etc. The whole idea is to help raise standards so that life will be simpler and better for consumers of these technologies.”

Big winners emerged in different categories as Nengi Hampson beat Erica Nlewedim, Pamilerin Adegoke, Aisha Yesuf and Tomike Adeoye to become Africa’s best Influencer of 2020/21.
