The thrill i get whenever i’m part of something unique cannot be explained. It’s not about the size of the event or the personality line up, but the atmosphere of pride when you see people come out for their Culture and Community.
The Ankara festival night and Community awards was organised by The Afro Heritage Group made up of men and women in the African community in Toronto and TK Topman a Toronto based Entertainment promoter, who a clearly is zealous and passionate about promoting entertainment in Canada.
The event was held on December 17th, 2017 at the Manhyia Palace convention centre in Toronto kicked of with the rendition of the both the Canadian and Nigerian national anthem.

Various Artiste who performed included the the Lovely Salamatu, Afrobeats singer Leo Josh “Mr Jeje”, Ghanaian Afrobeats artiste Big Shag and best African Canadian artist of the year Slimflex, Gospel artist Arojah and Banade Praise, Multiple award winner and renowed Juju muscian Chief Yinka Farinde and Omo Alade Ogo “Mr Doxology” himself. Beautiful Decor was provided by TosTam Event rental and Decoration.
The event was also grace with the presence of international Yoruba Actress Mrs Lola Alao
Being the Host on the Red carpet gave me the first hand opportunity to have a quick chat with the awardees, and they were all appreciative of the gesture of awarding them for their contributions of moral, spiritual, financial and social support in the African community.
I have to give a big “GBOSA” to all the guest and lovers of our culture for braving the cold and snow storm to attend this event. Torontonian una too much !!!
