Ahead of the 2015 Future Awards which holds on Sunday, December 6th, award nominees have been unveiled in an exciting art campaign.

Dubbed comic superheroes, the nominees include Trevoh Noah, Olamide, Yemi Alade, Cassper Nyovest, amongst others.

The comic illustrations, created by Comic Republic, a comic start up passionate about expiring young Africans through comics, plays on the nominees’ individual story arcs.

They further play on TFAA’s tradition of inspiring the continent through enterprise and industry.

Speaking on the project,  Eduvia Oyaide of Comic Republic said:

“Superheroes don’t always have to be fictional, we are inspired by the incredible work of TFAA over 10 years and then by 2015 crop of nominees who represent Africa's youth population making extraordinary efforts to better their communities."

Oyaide further said:

"We imagine this set of future leaders, thinkers and innovators as superheroes who have come to reclaim and rewrite the narrative of the African continent. We are happy to partner with Africa’s most prestigious youth event in celebrating Africa’s next set of leaders.”
