An inspirational awards ceremony will once again shine a light on African and Caribbean people living in West Yorkshire.

The annual Africa4U Awards will take place at City Hall from 5pm on Friday, October 27. 

People are invited to the evening of award recognitions and fascinating talks on African and Caribbean history. 

The event is hoped to boost community cohesion whilst offering opportunities for entertainment and networking. 

Tony Tokunbo Eteka Fernandez, CEO of Africa4U, said: “The soul of any community lives within the heart of its people. We simply cannot wait to see you.”

Tony organises Black History Month celebrations at the Houses of Parliament every year and welcomed a team of Bradfordians to speak at the most recent event.

He also wants to encourage more people from Bradford’s Black communities to get involved in local politics.

In 2022, Tony, a proud Nigerian who has lived in Bradford for five years after moving from London, was shortlisted in the National Diversity Awards.

Africa4U aims to give a platform to African and Caribbean people in the district, while also aiming to “bridge the gap” between people of all backgrounds in Bradford and encourage community cohesion.
