Kid star, OzzyBee bagged international award, stunned audience with an impeccable speech
The UNESCO Child Advocate Awardee, OzzyBee a.k.a OzzyBosco WonderKid exhibited an unimaginable feat recently in faraway Tanzania.
The period was when over 27 African countries gathered at the Millennium Towers, Dar Es Salaam in Tanzania for the 3rd edition of Pan African Humanitarian Summit/Awards 2017.
Described as the best since its inception, it featured the presence of intellectuals, entertainment icons, heads of Government and captains of industries from Africa. Among the special dignitaries was our own Master Oziomachukwu Favour Mojekwu, the 10 year old sensational artiste and classroom genius who has been featured in many local and international events including Britain’s Got Talent in Manchester, England.
OzzyBee was the only child VIP and Panelist at the event, where he presented a special paper on theCHALLENGES OF HUMANITARIAN ACTIONS IN AFRICA. His peace promulgating presentation attracted standing ovation from the crowd who watched him make a passionate plea for the African children (whom he described as Change Agents) to be given a place of honour in the scheme of things.
He drew a remarkable analogy towards the concluding part of his impeccable speech;
“It is important to note that there is no single presentation of this issue that could cover the scope of the discussion as different writers will surely present their own different angle.
However one thing that will remain a take home in the Summit is the fact that Humanitarian Actions has and will continue to have Challenges in Africa, unless we the younger generation get reoriented”
At the colourful Gala Night, he was bestowed with the prestigious honour of ”Minor Award in Entertainment & Child Advocacy” alongside African icons in various areas of endeavour such as His Excellency Ali Mohamed Shein, President of Zanzibar, ably represented by Hon Rashid Ali Juma (Minister of Sports); Prof Patrick Otieno Lumumba, Legal Luminary (CEO of Kenya School of Law); Dame Dr (Mrs) Patience Jonathan (The Fmr Nigerian First Lady); Minister for Information, Tourism, Culture, and Sports for Tanzania, Hon. Rashid Juma; Alvaro Rodriguez of United Nations; Ms Karima Rhanem (President of Intl Centre for Diplomacy from Morocco); Dr Justin Mutale of Zambia, etc.
It was an evening of splendour as one of the founding fathers of Africa and former Tanzania President, Late Julius Kambarage Nyerere was given a posthumous award.
The kid sensation mesmerized the audience who gave him a long standing ovation when he delivered a classical performance of his heart lifting song “Smile Again” which he dedicated to the Internally Displaced Children in Northern Nigeria. After his dazzling stage act, several dignitaries sought to take selfie with the Nigerian WonderKid. New contacts were consummated with invitations to visit some other African countries to sensitize and motivate their younger ones.
The razzmatazz that characterized the Gala Night did not evaporate thereafter as the following day; OzzyBee was honoured with a boat cruise to Mbudya Island, Dar Es Salam. The organizers, led by the Chairman Amb. Brig. Gen Wallace W. Williams (Rtd) and Amb. Babalola Omoniyiwere full of admiration for the young Lagos State Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) Ambassador who gave them classic entertainment on board the boat.
OzzyBee’s visit to Tanzania was celebrated in grand style by the Nigeria Ambassador, His Excellency Alhaji AmbIsah Sahabi Gada and his deputy who accorded him and his team a rousing welcome at The Nigeria House, Oyster Bay. His Pan African Award was gladly received by the High Commissioner who described him as a role model and blessing to the future generation of the Nigerian youths. In response, OzzyBee thanked His Excellency for his fatherly blessings and words of advice.
Having dedicated his prestigious Award to the less privileged children in Africa, OzzyBosco Wonderkid who champions “STOP CHILD CRUELTY” campaign stands as the first recipient of this unprecedented award. He remains resolute with the African dream and proclaims thus: “PEACE IS POSSIBLE”
