Limitless Live will be launching their Black Influence Awards tonight at London’s Roundhouse. A celebration of Black influencers and change-makers across a variety of industries.

Categories for the awards include: beauty and lifestyle, politics and social change, fashion, health and fitness, family, music, sport, entrepreneur, comedy and change-maker. Among those nominated tonight include Rochelle Humes, Marcus Rashford MBE, Irene Agbontaen, Munya Chawawa, Cat Burns and FLO.

Taking place on the same night as Limitless Live’s music festival, fans will be treated to special performances from Krept and Konan, K-Trap, Carla Prata, Crystal Millz and DJ Cuppy. As well as this, numerous workshops will be held throughout the day as part of the festival, with partner M&C Saatchi Sport and Entertainment and Universal Music.

Tolu founder of Limitless Live comments: “The Limitless Black Influence Awards is an extension of the Limitless Live brand which is focused on having an equitable impact on communities, societies and business. While we are excited about celebrating and highlighting the achievements of the Black Influnecers nominated we also want to go further and advocate through data around the pay disparity they face.”

In 2021 a survey conducted by global communications firm MSL found that the racial pay gap between white and BIPOC influencers is 29 per cent. Furthermore, the gap between white and black influencers is reportedly at 35 per cent. The Black Influence Awards have been created to challenge brands to pay equitably and showcase those who are having a positive impact on their industry.
