Held on the night of May 6, 2023, at the Landmark Centre, Lagos, and hosted by Nigeria’s finest premium spirit brand, Lord’s Gin, the event celebrated Nigerians who embody the spirit of creativity, courage, and excellence that drives innovation.
The honorees for this year’s event were diverse and honoured for their will to win, tactical resoluteness in business, and most importantly, their contributions to various fields, including technology, finance, entertainment, agriculture, and social impact.

The organisers also brought back its special category, “Ladies of Impact’, to recognise women who have made an outstanding impact in their work and innovations. They are Temilade Salami, a Climate education and communications professional. Also, founder and Executive Director of “EcoChampions”; Adesuwa Iyare, a photographer specialising in street and documentary photography; Raquel Daniel, a Social entrepreneur working in marginalised communities in Nigeria with a focus on children’s education; Abisoye- Ajayi Akinfolarin, Founder of Pearls Africa in 2014, an NGO focused on promoting the cause and advancement of vulnerable young girls and women in Africa; and Tomie Balogun, Founder and current CEO of Twelve, a digital financial wellness company that provides its services through digital communities, gamified education and technology.

Stanley Obi, Director, Prime Business Unit at Grand Oak Limited, explained the importance and symbolism of the new Lord’s Achievers Award’s plaque and also highlighted how the Lord’s Gin brand, through the Award, continues to influence and inspire Nigerians to contribute to the development of society. “The new Lord’s emblem is a distinctive part of the brand’s image, representing the quality and heritage of the Lord’s London Dry Gin. It is a perfect representation of what the majority of Nigerian youth want to have or be associated with: authority, status, and premium association. All of which are synonymous with our honorees and the Lord’s London Dry Gin brand,” he said.

Hosted by Daniel Ettim Effiong and Eku Edewor, the black-tie event had notable celebrities like Johnny Drille, Dj Big N, Shoddy, and a host of other stars in attendance.
