On Sunday 22nd November 2015, the Awesome Treasures Foundation held the inaugural edition of her Awesome Awards to celebrate trailblazers who emulate the values and ethics we should celebrate as a nation in their fields. They display transformational leadership in their fields and bring more to their fields of endeavor than most in their space do.
The award was alongside the annual Thanksgiving Service organized by ATF where in 2014, the guest artiste was Frank Edwards. This year, Glowreeyah Braimah and Modele were guest artistes.

The event was anchored by Kemi Ajumobi, it featured Modele who led the praise/worship and the guest minister was Glowreeyah Braimah who made sure there was no dull moment with soulful rendition of songs in appreciation to God. It was indeed an awesome and colourful event as the ambience at Muson Centre where it was held was captivating and the audience enthused. If everything we saw at the event in 2015 is anything to go by, it is certain that the 2016 edition will be worth waiting for!
