Brand Africa 100 is a proprietary approach developed by Brand Leadership Group in partnership with Brand Finance plc, the world’s leading independent valuation consultancy, TNS, the globally respected consumer knowledge and Information Company and Geopoll, the leading mobile survey platform with a database of nearly 200m users in emerging markets.

“These rankings are an important metric of the progress Africa is making in building made in Africa brands and challenging the dominant non-African brands in Africa which over the years have accounted for 80% of the most admired brands in Africa and a dominant 99% share of the value of the Top 100,” Thebe Ikalafeng, Founder and Chairman – Brand Africa said.

“While non-African brands dominate Africa because of their sheer volumes, historical admiration and investment, it is important for Africa’s ultimate economic independence that it competes for a larger share of its own consumer base, which is estimated will reach a population of 2bn by 2050 and achieve consumer expenditure of $1 trillion by 2020. 

“Equally, the license for non-African brands to thrive in Africa will be determined no longer by history and economic might, but by how they adapt to the evolving and increasingly assertive African consumer who demand brands that reflect their needs, conditions and ambitions.”

The Gala will be hosted by Brand South Africa and supported by Brand Finance, TNS, Geopoll, SA Mint, Fresh RSVP, SA Mint, African Business, CNBC Africa, M&G Africa, African Media Agency, Blue Media and Fresh RSVP.

Simphiwe Dana, a multi-platinum-selling award-winning South African Afro-Jazz-Soul singer and songwriter and Congolese-born TRESOR, a multi platinum selling DRC born singer-songwriter will entertain the guest, who will be feasting on the pan-African culinary delights of award-winning and international culinary star and Foodnetwork host, Siba Mtongana.

Brand Africa is a brand-led pan-African intergenerational movement to inspire a great Africa through creating a positive image of Africa, celebrating its diversity and driving its competitiveness.
