Friends, followers, subscribers and stakeholders recently gathered in a digital space to celebrate Britain’s first African newspaper at 19 years old.

The occasion turned out to be a brainstorming event on themes prevalent in African communities, while creating a space for learning, fun and entertainment.

The interactive event was attended by Dan Hobbs, Director Windrush, Asylum, Immigration and Citizenship at the Home Office, UK, who delivered a speech on the progress, process and further plans of the Windrush program in the UK.

Other speakers in attendance were Dele Ogun and Olu Ogunyomi, whose presentations focused on issues affecting Africans in the diaspora.

Nigerian celebrities such as Kehinde Bankole, Yemi Sodimu, and Omo baba also made appearances. They praised the newspaper’s Managing Director and editors, Prince and Princes Mike and Golda Abiola for creating such a platform that keeps Diaspora Africans informed about the continent.

The toast of the day was the talented Aduke, an African voice who graced the occasion with his sonorous voice. Doing what he does best, Aduke blessed the audience with the magic of his lyrics and his guitar.

This Nigerian-British singer performed both original songs and others by well-known artists. One of the most prominent melodies was “Man is Man”, which spoke of “issues of racism, classism and all” isms “as she called it. Other songs performed were” In My Shoes “, an original from her debut album , “Peace and Light”, “7 Lives of Beautiful Nubia” and “Hallo” by Beyonce.
