    How do they come up with irrelevant awards like “BRAND AMBASSADOR OF THE YEAR” ni sin? What is the criteria for choosing the nominees? Do they look at the financial books to see if sales of the said brands increased after signing on these ambassadors?

    3. Linda Ikeji…. without sentiments, there’s no reason why she should be missing on your list, except you want us all to believe your organization is bias(based on personal reason perhaps) ‎
    ‎She is an industry leader, a motivator, u can’t imagine how many people have started blogs because they want to be like her; she is charitable and a very powerful voice for and to the public. Only sentiment will keep her out of this list… except there’s a surprise down the line

    I believe we have great female bloggers, and also women who do charity works like some who devote their wealth and time for the lessvprivileged in the society. Y re they not featured in any of the cayegories, and leaving out Linda Ikeji, odd. I think its proper to recognise real women, who make inpact in the society to encourage them too.
