2020 100 Most Influential Young Nigerians announced by Avance Media

As part of its annual programme to celebrate and honour Nigeria’s most outstanding youth, leading African PR and rating firm Avance Media has published the fifth edition of its annual 100 Most Influential Young Nigerians ranking.

The list which is centered on revealing the most hard-working youth features individuals who stood tall in their business and careers amidst the COVID- 19 pandemic and the EndSARS protest. Putting diversity into consideration, the list features young people from varied industries and sectors including Politics, Civil Society, Music, Business, Media, Science and Technology. Some of the notable individuals present on the list include Mark Angel, Burna Boy, Wizkid, Davido, Tiwa Savage etc.

Unlike previous rankings where qualified individuals are listed in the order of ranks in line with public votes, this year’s ranking is published in alphabetical order. Without public voting, this list features extraordinary and lesser-known individuals who contributed in diverse ways towards the fight against COVID-19 and the EndSARS protest.
