AKA, Cassper Nyovest, DJ Zinhle, Bonang Matheba & More make Avance Media’s List of “100 Most Influential Young South Africans” in 2016

Avance Media has announced its inaugural list of 100 Most Influential Young South Africans.

The list which reflects the achievements of young South Africans throughout the year 2016 was streamlined in 10 distinct categories which represent key sectors of South Africa’s economy. The list is made up of thirty-nine women and fifty-one men and  it is an initiative meant to serve as a source of inspiration to young people around the world.

According to Prince Akpah, MD of Avance Media, the initiative which was previously only launched for Ghana is embarking on a continental agenda of leading in sprouting the works and achievements of young people whose immense contributions are sidelined and South Africa happens to be part of the first set of countries involved in the ranking.
