Anas, Bola Ray voted 2015 Most Influential Young Ghanaians

World renowned investigative journalist and CEO of Tiger Eye PI, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has been voted the Most Influential Young Ghanaian out of a list of 50 personalities.

Notable among Anas’ works in 2015 was his undercover project which exposed a damning corruption scandal in Ghana’s judiciary. The documentary film shook the world, leading to the dismissal of several judicial workers and some judges. The secretly filmed documentary also made it as the most successful film premiere in Ghana which was shown amidst legal tussles.

The CEO of Excellence in Broadcasting Network – owners of Starr 103.5 FM – Bola Ray was the first runner-up followed by Dede Ayew of the Black Stars and Francis Xavier Sosu a legal partner, F-X Law and Associates.

Farida Bedwei, the co-founder and CTO of Logiciel Ltd who runs FinTech and serves on the National Communication Authority board was voted the most influential young female.

Public Votes accounted for 80% of total votes, whiles an Impact Assess Research conducted by the Agape Research Center made the remaining 20% of the final rankings.

“These great young achievers have toiled for Ghana, representing and influencing their motherland positively across diverse activities and have shown their relevance among millions of young people across Ghana,” a statement from the organisers Avance Media said.

In launching what became confidently rated and endorsed by the public as the most comprehensive ranking in Ghana so far, Prince Akpah, MD of Avance Media stated, “even though 2015 was marked as a year coupled with lot of challenges, it also turned out to be a motivating one attested by the massive involvement of young people in various activities bringing at par their works and impacts.”
