New Year Message from our CEO



Happy New Year MIPADians and Friends.  I wish us all a prosperous 2019 ahead.

The past two years for MIPAD have been remarkable, due largely to your steadfast support.  We are indeed very grateful.  In 2019, we seek your continued support as we stand together in unlocking new possibilities for the glory of Africa and its Diaspora

As we approach the midpoint for the UN International Decade for People of African Descent (2015 – 2024), my message is: “there is no competition in contribution because collaboration is the new BLACK.”

Africa is being left behind as the rest of the world advances at a rapid pace. We have great minds across the globe working at an individual level for the glory of other countries and corporations.  We must harness the power of these great minds in every corner of the world to create a collective impact for our beloved continent. That is why MIPAD exists and you are a part of this great mission.

In line with the first pillar of the decade; RECOGNITION, we at the Most Influential 100 Company, will continue to identify, recognize and connect the Most Influential People of African Descent across various verticals before 2024 in support of the UN International Decade for People of African Descent.

I am pleased to inform you that thanks to our collective efforts, this decade is now officially recognized by the African Union Commission Diaspora Division, Citizens and Diaspora Organizations (CIDO),

I am excited about the new possibilities we are going to unlock in 2019 and I invite you to join us in making our top three goals possible. They are:

1. Awareness and Recognition of the Decade
2. Identification of Influential People of African Descent Worldwide for Global 100 Editions
3. Bridging the Funding Gap to Deliver Our Desired Impact

Sincerely Yours,

Kamil Olufowobi,
CEO, Most Influential 100
