Dynamix All Youth Awards is the most anticipated annual youth event which identifies and recognizes excellence of the Nigerian youth and celebrates the youth culture. [The Awards] has been able to identify youth passions which [it] uses annually to bring teeming youths together in one venue. From award rewards, music, comedy, fashion and general entertainment. Dynamix awards has for 5 years maintained the tradition of hosting youths from the entertainment industry, students from across universities in Nigeria and also Nigeria youths abroad to reward them and celebrate them to foster unity and oneness.
Speaking with Tunde Alade, The Co-coordinator of Dynamix all youth award, a talented young man with a vision for rewarding the youth, who are termed as the future leaders of tomorrow, he takes on his quest to establishing hope, rewarding excellence and a platform with which to celebrate the average youth.
When asked what inspired him to start the awards he says, “Youths across Nigeria especially students have never had a unifying forum where role models amongst them are celebrated and also where they can at the end of the year mingle and relate and get inspired. What we have are music, movies and other awards which does not affect or impacts or the core Nigerian youth. Nigeria youths are always spectators at these other awards. Dynamix thought there is a vacuum which needs to be filled and filled effectively for the benefit of youths not just on campuses but a forum that unites every youth irrespective of your discipline or level. And so far we have maintained the tradition.” The Dynamix All Youth Awards experience has been wonderful, inspiring, educative and entertaining. We have been thankful to God and our sponsors. It has been a jolly good ride with dynamic changes every edition. We have been waxing stronger every year but we need more sponsors to give back to award recipients.
Like every other rewarding platform in Nigeria, Dynamix is not without its own fair share of challenges, Sponsorship has been a major challenge because the change of people in the organization sponsoring any event can create issues in continued sponsorship or can stagger the relationship of any event with the official sponsor. If there is continued sponsorship, there shouldn’t be any issues, although in this regard Lagos state government has been a regular support. Their presence at all our events is highly appreciated says Mr Alade.

Dynamix has made a mark in the youth market because of its various platforms targeted to encourage the youths a feat which he attributes to the glory of God, hard work and a dedicated team of young people all less than 30 years of age. And also the never say die attitude which the team possess at where there are no sponsors, we still go ahead with a befitting award show.
With a long term vision.
