    who put this award together?
    these people are not credible in any way, who awards wedding of the year? Where are the ones that actually made positive changes within the afrocaribbean society. The photography guys, if those are the best, I will use my phone for my wedding.

    The truth hurts but @bayo is right. While what they are trying to do is laudable, being the first year of the awards they should have aimed a LOT higher. There are soo many good names missing from each shortlist they risk losing credibility and being a laughing stock. Abeg we need to do better as a collective. Anything worth doing at all is worth doing well. I hope it’s not just an excuse to give their friends awards sha.
