The event is a celebration of Nigeria Community Excellence Award in South Africa. 
We believe that we have a major part to play in developing the Nigerian community in South Africa, and this we are doing effectively by organizing community empowerment projects. In 2013, we started for the first time in South Africa, the Nigerian Community Excellence Awards which was hosted to commensurate Nigeria’s Independence Day Celebration. 

The purpose of this is to give a sense of belonging to the increasing population of Nigerians in South Africa and to celebrate individual and corporate achievements of many Nigerians who are contributing immensely to the betterment of the Nigerian community and South African society at large.

Therefore, Nigeria Community Excellence Awards is a major event organized by The Nigerian Voice Newspaper to celebrate Nigeria’s Independence and award excellence within the Nigerian Community in South Africa.

The Awards brings together officials of the Nigerian High Commission and Consulate, members of Nigerian community in South Africa, representatives of Nigerian associations and corporate South Africa as well as South African citizens and members of African Diaspora, to celebrate and savor Nigerian-made entertainment, culture, music, attire and cuisine. 

Every year, the awards ceremony honors the Most Inspiring Nigerian among other categories of awards. It is highlighted with the best of Nigerian music and cultural performances.

We deem it necessary and important that as a community we MUST celebrate and award excellence to those deserving of it and are flying the Nigerian flag positively in their different career. This gesture will send a strong and positive message to the community and the South Africa society at large that as a community we appreciate the effort of our citizens and as such deem it important to celebrate them.

It is also very worrisome, shameful and not befitting that the Nigerian Community in South Africa does not have a single unifying event to celebrate our diverse and rich cultures, Cousine, clothing, movie and buzzing music industry adjudge to be the best in Africa and one of the most vibrant in the world. 

The event will witness different artist performing live for guest at the event, alongside other activities like cultural performances, comedy and deejays resident in South Africa.

The event will begin at 3pm with red carpet picture taking and media interviews, and will last for three hours. The awards proper will begin by 6pm to 9pm. After party and networking will commence immediately after the awards and will last till 2 am with deejays and artists entertaining guest.
