Speaking at the ceremony Tiwalola Olanubi, Jnr. CEO, Trendupp Africa, said the awards was created to recognise and celebrate the efforts influencers and content creators put into their craft.

“At Trendupp, 2 years ago we saw the confidence, fearlessness, commitment and creativity Nigerians were putting into the content they shared and we were truly inspired. So, we started building Trendupp; a platform designed to reward them faster and better for their craft, but as we did that, we also noticed another void-they were not getting their FLOWERS, they needed to be celebrated…and that’s why we are here at Nigeria’s first-ever award for Influencers and content creators – Trendupp Awards,” he said.
