Upbeat swing for Vigor Unsung Heroes awards


Queen Amina

After months of intensive planning, Canada-based Nigerian actress Queen Amina Odeh Eghujovbo, otherwise known as Queen Amina, has unveiled plans for this year’s edition of the Vigor Unsung Heroes Awards. Billed for September 29, at Woodbine Banquet and Convention Centre, Toronto Canada, the event is expected to attract diplomats, philanthropist, media personalities, government officials, Royal Fathers and celebrities.

Introduced in 2015, the Vigor Unsung Heroes Awards is dedicated to spreading light on the world’s greatest people. The award winners are people of various backgrounds and ethnicity, who have one thing in common: soulful kindness and selflessness. This award is for the modern day heroes, who shed light in the darkness and ask for nothing in return.

An international award winning actress, multi-award winning event planner and online talk show host, the initiator Queen Amina holds a degree in Public Relations, which has enabled her to work as an event planner and business representative over the years. She has been featured in several films and TV series such as Till You’re Sixteen, Treacherous Heart, Entrapped, Lost in an Island, Professor Dicks, The Web and XYZA, where she portrayed a young abused woman in the award winning film. She remains a beacon of light in the fast growing Nigeria-Canada film industry.


The lovable actress strives to empower, encourage and celebrate people, who are making a difference around the world through their various volunteer and humanitarian works. Coming from a humble background, she believes in giving back and getting involved in community service, a drive that has seen her get involved in mentorship and activism. She has been working closely with different organisations worldwide to help promote voluntary/humanitarian works with the aim to eradicate hunger by raising funds for charities.

Notable among past winners of Vigor Awards are former president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, Hon. Hazel McCallion, Former Mayor of Mississauga, Ontario, Aare Gani Adam, Yoruba High Chief, Gwyneth Herrera, 10 year old artiste and Philanthropist, Dr. Princess Mokolo, Founder and CEO of LUCINMA Women Development Centre, and Dele Momodu, publisher of Ovation International.
