Belle of African Nations (BOAN) 2015 Team Due In Banjul, The Gambia Today
Belle of African Nations (BOAN) is the first of its kind Pan-African beauty pageant that celebrates female heroism through the lenses of arts and culture in a bid to enlighten and empower the female gender. The 2015 (maiden) edition celebrates the life and times of Madame Efunroye Tinubu, the first Iyalode of Egbaland (Nigeria) with the theme: Madame Tinubu: Heroine in the midst of Heroes.
BOAN does not just celebrate the past heroines of Africa; it also recognizes and awards the efforts of present day women, who are making conscious efforts to affect their world, from all walks of life. Being the backbone of Arts and Culture in the Gambia, our organisation deems it fit to associate with your person and office and intimate you on the activities of BOAN.
Gambia, being one of the participating countries at BOAN 2015, will be hosting the organisers of BOAN from the 18th through the 23rd of September to facilitate publicity.
