This is just the beginning… I may not be there yet, but I’m closer than I was yesterday. Thank you so much.’’
The International Achievement Recognition Awards (IARA) was founded in 2014 with the aim of celebrating artistes across the art and entertainment industry, highlighting outstanding talents, laudable initiatives and recognise the hard work of those in theatre, music, film/TV and the fashion industry.
Other winners at this year’s edition, which held over the weekend, include Toyin Lawani for Best Fashion Female Designer, Bonang Matheba for Best Media Personality and Michael Dappah for Best Male Artiste.Ever since the break up of P-Square, the Okoye brothers have followed their individual careers and it seems to be paying off, as both brothers are not doing badly.
