TV/Event Host/Actress Peace Hyde, over the weekend hosted the fifth edition of the African Diasporan Awards 2015 held in the United States of America.

Ghanaian Nicole Amarteifio, creator and Executive producer of hit web series, An African City won Creative Artist of the Year.

“There is much to celebrate in Africa’s social and economic progress over the past decade,” Applause Africa co-founder Debo Folorunsho says. “But if the continent is to build on educational foundations of his youth and stop the seeping away of skills, talent and human potential caused by the crisis in education and political leadership. Africa’s youth have a right to an education that offers them a better future – and they have a right to expect their leaders and the international community to get behind them.”

The event is organized by ApplauseAfrica.
