AYOO AFRICA Top Ten D.C.

to
Ayoo Africa Top Ten DC is a celebration of African innovators, designers, artists, entertainments, professionals and organizations, across 9 categories. Ayoo Africa does not claim to have exclusiveness on who is the most innovative, but over the last 6 months of research, it sought to find out who has been making a remarkable impact in the DC Metropolitan region for the last 12 months. Your favorite DJ is innovative. The restaurant where you order Suya or Sambusa is innovative. The designer who makes your fashion statement outfit is innovative. 

The 9 categories are:

  1. Community & Governance 
  2. Nightlife & Events 
  3. Technology & Innovation 
  4. Music & Entertainment 
  5. Culinary 
  6. Curators 
  7. Media / Film 
  8. Art
