Bellafricana ACE Awards 2018 | What to Expect at the Second Edition

Creative MSMEs have invaded Nigeria (Africa) and we certainly are not complaining.
In 2016, it became apparent that Nigeria was an import driven nation and that was how the “buy Naija to grow the Naira” came to be.
However, various sects of the economy are realising that for Nigeria to diversify and become an export driven nation, the beam light falls on MSMEs.
A fresh year is on the calendar and it is almost time for the second edition of the annual African Creative Exhibition and Awards (termed ACE Awards) hosted by Bellafricana. It brings to Lagos the best creative minds in the fields of Art and Craft, Fashion, Manufacturing, Beauty, Food Produce and so much more.
