REPRESENTATION: London Power 100 list

2018's LONDON Power 100 list has been released and nearly a quarter of those included in this year’s list are from ethnic minorities.

Whilst Her Majesty - Queen Elizabeth II was named the most powerful person in London, stars from the BAME community shined in this year’s London power list.

Actress and model Naomi Campbell scooped a position in the top ten, whilst Stormzy added to his recent successes being named the 14th most powerful person in London beating the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prime Minister Theresa May who ranked at number 30.

Actor Idris Elba made the list at number 22 whilst Britain's most successful-ever distance runner Sir Mo Farah was named the twenty-eighth most powerful person in the capital.

The list takes into consideration various achievements and the level of influence each suggested inductee has in London.

HONOURED: Michael Dapaah

Commenting on the diversity of the list, LondonPower100 President Nicholas Taylor said: “The curated London Power 100 list shows just how diverse our capital city is, it is particularly notable how talent from various disciplines and even members of the Royal family have been credited for their work in making London a city to be proud of.”

Other stars who got a nod in the list include Oscar-nominated actor Daniel Kaluuya, boxer Anthony Joshua, SBTV founder Jamal Edwards MBE, Naomie Harris, Krept & Konan, Michael Dapaah, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Labour MP Diane Abbott, Ian Wright, Chris Eubank, Tinie Tempah and Noel Clarke.
