Black men all over the world are making the effort to establish and build a remarkable imprint or contribute meaningfully to the growth of their surroundings on a regular basis.
For the organizers of the Black Magic Awards – lead by Britain’s Got Talent Finalist Kojo Anim and Editor and Entrepreneur Annika Allen, the idea of founding the award show is to honour 16 inspirational black men for their excellent works in the area of fashion, entertainment, business, sport, fashion, community development, music, movies and more.
Hence, on Monday, June 10 at The Criterion Theatre in London’s West End, the 2019 edition of the show was staged and hosted by Kojo Anim. The star-studded night gave the audience every element of fun and entertainment with an impressive line-up of performers including rapper Donae’o, singers Jahmene Douglas (X-factor) and LA Gray as well as stand-up comedy from viral/UniLad entertainer Axel Blake.

So Solid Crew’s Megaman received the legend honour on the night presented to him by former Love Islander Marcel Somerville, and brand influencer Breeny Lee.
