Ooni of Ife Receives Africa Travel 100 Global Personalities Award


At the sidelines of the launch of the Oduduwa Museum unveiled at the Brazilian Embassy in Lagos the organisers of Akwaaba African Travel Market presented His Royal Majesty the Ooni of Ife with the First Africa Travel 100 Global Personalities award. The Ooni of Ife His Royal Majesty Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, who is the Special guest of honour for the African Diaspora Tourism conference holding at the 15th Akwaaba Travel Market is the Custodian of 15 Famous Festivals among which the world Famous Olojo Festival in October. The Africa Travel 100 Awards now in her 18th year, has recognized over the years leaders, industry practitioners and the government officials who have promoted tourism and improved travel using unique platforms and new information. African Tourism Diaspora Conference 2019 is to mark the 400 years of slavery. Slavery is a very sensitive topic that has created an uncomfortable relationship between Africa and its diaspora. The Conference is an opportunity to celebrate the merging of Africans, Americans, Caribbean's and the rest of the world during this memorable gathering expected in Lagos. Africa with 54 countries and a population of 1.2 billion has an unbelievable tourist attraction. The Caribbean and African diaspora have a unique culture, rich heritage and beautiful destinations for tourists, hence the need to connect and combine these wonderful cultures and population, creating a huge global market. The African Diaspora Tourism Conference presents a platform to discuss, initiate, dialogue and celebrate a new relationship. However, the recognition of Africa as a beacon of hope for African people living on the continent and in the Diaspora to explore, relate and live using the African Diaspora Tourism Conference as the African Platform for the foundation of this long-lasting relationship. Posterity will remember that the improvement was earned not by coincidence but by conscious efforts to validate the struggles, strengths, and linkages between African descendants on a Pan-African scale. The African diaspora and Africa have the same unique culture, rich heritage and beautiful destinations for Tourism and Trade, therefore, there is a need to connect and combine these wonderful cultures and population as a market for mutual benefit. The African Travel 100 Global Personalities award will take place during the 15th AKWAABA African Travel Market at Eko Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos on the 23rd of September, 2019.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
