I am proud to announce that I have been presented with the TIG (True Inspirational Generation) Network Afrika CEO of the Year Award, 2021-2022.

TIG Network Afrika is an organisation that recognises the importance of children and youth alike to have homegrown role-models they can follow and emulate. And it is primarily for that reason that I was chosen. Indeed in 2021 we at HiPipo successfully undertook all our various initiatives across the year, in fields as varied as Financial Inclusion advocacy, women empowerment, awards and entertainment, in spite of it being another pandemic-stricken year.

I greatly appreciate this accolade, and find it pleasing that the efforts of the HiPipo team are being acknowledged. I only received this award because I work with a fantastic team. Of course it should also never be forgotten that we have been blessed with extraordinarily supportive partners. What we have done would not have been possible without the generous sponsorship of the Gates Foundation, and the technical input of Modusbox, Crosslake Technologies and the Mojaloop Foundation. This accolade is for all of us at HiPipo, and will spur us onwards to do even more.
