The award ceremony is scheduled for Saturday June 15, at New York, Time Center. The bubbly actress has been invited as a special guest for the occasion while another Ghanaian actress, Jackie Appiah, will be receiving an award there.
The 2013 FACE List Awards is host by Face2face Africa and generously sponsored by State Farm and Arik Airlines. Six pan-African Movers and Shakers will be honoured for their commitment to excellence.

As an organization devoted to being “The Voice” of the emergent generation of African descendants, Face2face Africa established The F.A.C.E. List Awards in 2011 as a platform to acknowledge, celebrate, and honour the outstanding achievements of Africans and friends of Africa who are contributing towards a more dynamic and advanced global community.
There will be several musical acts, performances and surprises throughout the night. The show will be hosted by the eloquent and brilliant Eric J. Henderson of Huffington Post, and will take place at The Times Center in the heart of New York City. Red carpet will commence at 7:00pm sharp.
