THE PRINCE of Wales has congratulated the GUBA Awards UK on celebrating their 10th anniversary.
To date GUBA Awards has evolved into GUBA Enterprise comprising of several branches: GUBA Awards UK, GUBA Awards USA, GUBA Expo, GUBA Foundation, GUBA Careers and GUBA Diaspora Card.
GUBA was also involved in Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall’s visit to Ghana last year, which saw them attend a fashion show and state banquet.
One of the organisation’s key objectives is to continuously build and maintain the connection and relationship between Africa and the diaspora.
Prince Charles acknowledged the enterprise’s work in this area in his congratulatory letter to GUBA. He also commended the GUBA Awards for their continuous efforts in highlighting the amazing talents displayed across Africa and the diaspora.
After 10 successful years in the UK, GUBA Enterprise have taken its awards ceremony to the US to expand its reach to the trailblazers within the Ghanaian-American society.
“The African diaspora in the Americas continues to influence arts and culture, business, sport, technology, and entertainment. GUBA recognises and celebrates the efforts of these game-changers, as a way to encourage the promotion of growth and innovation in Africa, to the rest of the world,” said Dentaa Amoateng MBE, founder of GUBA Enterprise.
