Sowambe, the pan-African social media lifestyle brand is proud to present the 1st Sowambe Awards

Sowambe, the ‘pan-African social media lifestyle brand,’ recently launched the 1st Sowambe Awards. Sowambe Awards will recognize and celebrate the best social media adopters, talents, celebs, brands, professionals as well as social web platforms in Nigeria. This is a great initiative and I only hope the team is able to bring this concept to other African countries in the future. Certainly, the best way forward is to spend more time celebrating the entrepreneurs making the difference today.

The Awards has about 25 categories and will allow participants to nominate and vote online for a period of one month for their favourites, based on a clear understanding and good judgment on activities in the social web.
