The day we’ve all been waiting for is finally here. It’s The African Creative Exhibition and Awards, [ACE Awards] 2021. For some, it’s the celebration of these creatives and others, simply want to finally know and meet the official winners for the ACE Awards 2021. Either way, it is a night to remember.
The air is a bit tense but all for the right reasons as the nominees are aching to finally get the results and know who would become the winners for the 15 categories.
With a successful Creatives’ Connect & Exhibition held during the day, the expectations for the ACE Awards dinner was incredibly high. And I dare say that those expectations were surpassed in flying colours! With no further ado, meet the official winners for the ACE Awards 2021.
