He says “I am passionate about promoting African communities in the Diaspora (the dispersion or spread of any people from their original homeland) and African Communities around the world and have spent the last 5 years doing this.
AFRICA4U promotes the true life stories and the success stories of Africans and people of colour in the Diaspora and around the world.”
Tony is an author, poet, blogger and youth empowerment consultant, and the organiser of The Black History Month Celebrations at London’s Houses of Parliament for the last four years.
The award ceremony on 3 February will be at the offices of Malta Microfinance Ltd, at
