Reviewing the Beffta awards night 2012.

30 Oct

Saturday 27th October saw the 4th annual prestigious BEFFTA awards event at the Hippodrome London. Filled with industry personalities and experts, making it to me the biggest Black event of the year. If you missed it, well you have yourself to blame given the utmost publicity given to it.

Well back to it, the venue was packed with 3000 enthusiastic audience from far and wide, of any colour and race. The red carpet was dazzling and glittering with stars and  beautiful Queens and well groomed Kings of Black entertainment and lifestyle . Among the stars are the global singing sensation Lemar, our very own Fabrice Muamba, and Sir Trevor Mc Donald who recieved a life time recognition award with a standing ovation from the 3000 loyal fans. Proving trully that he is a legend of Broadcast. We love you Sir Respect to whom it is due. (Look out for C. Hub next issue out December for details on the life of Sir Trevor Mc Donalds as the first Black British Broadcaster)

Any way C. Hub was there live and we got chatty with the founder Pauline Long and this is what she had to say,

“I’m extremely happy to see BEFFTA fulfilling it’s purpose and the purpose being honouring and celebrating a truly talented and hard-working community. People came together to network and appreciate each other’s accomplishments. I’m so grateful for everyone that attended, at BEFFTA awards everyone is special. We honoured a legend, Sir Trevor McDonald with a standing ovation. We honoured unsung talent and as always we will continue to appreciate everyone that contributes to entertainment, film, fashion, television and arts awards. We look forward to yet another special BEFFTA 2013 which will be our grand 5th year anniversary”

Pictures and more highlights of the event will be on the next issue of C. Hub magazine. Watch out!!!.

Her face might not be recognisable to many but her works have made an impart in the world of art and design. The talented Nigerian artist have not left any stone unturned in making sure her work stands more than meet the eye.

Nnenna Okore is an Associate Professor and former chair of the Art Department at North Park University, Chicago, where she teaches Sculpture. She earned her B.A degree in Painting from the University of Nigeria (First Class Honors) in 1999, and an M.A and M.F.A. in Sculpture from the University of Iowa in 2004 and 2005. She has received several national and international awards and been shown in numerous prestigious galleries and museums within and outside the United States. As a recipient of the 2012/13 Fulbright Scholar Award, she will be spending a year in Nigeria teaching and creating new artworks.

Egwuukwu by Nnenna Okore.

She is a renowned name for her unique way of turning our everyday waste into something that can only be described as epitome of creativity. Having been raised in Nsukka, a city in eastern Nigerian, Nnenna has used her experiences and understanding of her culture to tell stories that only words could not have told.  Her works are highlights of her perception of texture, undulating contours and movements that exist within our ephemeral world; and she aims to  evoke some reflection about how we can better preserve and care for our earthbound surroundings.

Twisted Ambience by Nnenna Okore

Tune in for more  works from Nnenna,as she  speaks to C. Hub magazine exclusively of  her life as an artist coming up in the next issue of  C. Hub magazine out December 1st.
