The Ethnic Business Awards: A Night of Celebration for Foreigners in Nigeria
An upcoming award ceremony, with a focus on honouring and celebrating foreigners living and working in Nigeria, is on the horizon. The event, known as “The Ethnic Business Awards” (TEBA), will make its debut on Nigeria’s Independence Day, October 1st, 2023. Held at the prestigious Oriental Hotel in Lekki, Lagos, the ceremony aims to recognize the valuable contributions and achievements of these individuals, creating a platform to acknowledge their remarkable endeavours.
According to Andrew Anyanwu,
TEBA’s Director of Logistics, most of the awards projects in Nigeria are geared towards eulogising Nigerians without recourse to considering foreigners and the migrants community. So it is in this regard that The Ethnic Business Awards debuted.
For us, The Ethnic Business Awards is a Corporate Social Responsibilty, our own way of giving back to our guests, our idea of celebrating foreigners, those foreign businesses, diplomatic missions and migrants community for their unflinching support and contributions to the Nigerian economy.
In the year 2020, the official figure of international migrants in Nigeria was given as 1.3m, though debatable, and that’s just a rough estimate. With that statistics, Nigeria has, the largest migrants’ population in Africa and seventh largest in the world.
This amazing population and outstanding achievements informed the need to appreciate and reward the heroic contributions of these foreigners in the Nigeria’s business arena.
The Ethnic Business Awards is a corporate social responsibility initiative—a way for them to give back to esteemed guests and celebrate foreigners, foreign businesses, diplomatic missions, and the migrant community for their unwavering support and contributions to the Nigerian economy.
