GAB Awards Founder / CEO – ‘Femi Okutubo explained that: “The Trumpet Newspaper, concerned with the negative stories about Africa and Africans which was not a true reflection of the community and the continent; had earlier started The Trumpet Newspaper in 1995 as a way of promoting the positive image of Africa and Africans. 

“In 1999, we took steps beyond the objectives of The Trumpet Newspaper, by establishing the GAB Awards to not only promote, but reward, excellence among those who promoting the positive image of Africa and Africans. It is open to Africans and Friends of Africa.”
