In alignment with the United Nations General Assembly resolution 68/237, which established the International Decade for People of African Descent to span from 2015 to 2024, the Most Influential People of African Descent (MIPAD) has diligently sought out exceptional individuals of African descent across the globe.
This initiative aims to form a dynamic network of accomplished figures who can collectively contribute to the recognition, justice, and development of Africa and its people, both on the continent and within its Diaspora.
One such remarkable individual making waves in this prestigious list is Beauty Etsanyi Tukura. Born on October 21, 1997, Tukura hails from Nigeria and boasts a diverse portfolio that includes reality TV stardom, entrepreneurship, and success as a beauty pageant contestant.
Her crowning achievement came in 2019 when she clinched the title of Miss Nigeria 2019, marking her as a rising star in her nation.
Tukura recently took to her Instagram page to share an exciting announcement with her followers. She proudly revealed that she has earned the esteemed position of fifth on the Most Influential People of African Descent 2023 list, featured in the Global Top 100 under 40 edition.
This recognition not only spotlights her outstanding accomplishments but also emphasizes her potential to make a significant impact on the world stage as an influential person of African descent.
