The Voice Magazine is a monthly publication established on August 12th 1999 in the Netherlands to create a voice for Africans across Europe. The Voice Magazine is headquartered in Almere, The Netherlands with offices in Amsterdam and Den Haag in The Netherlands. We initially started with only 500 copies.
With support from various people and African Missions, The Magazine has grown its circulation to 60,000 copies per month and is one of the most ready Magazines across Europe. The motto is “Actuated towards Africa’s advancement”.
Interestingly, The Voice magazine is also the first African publication to be circulated for free across Europe, totally depending on advertisement and subscription as a means of sustaining the publication.
Among prominent Africans honoured by The Voice in the past are Dr. Kenneth Kaunda, former President of Zambia, President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma, President of the Republic of Sierra Leone, Mrs. Fatou Bensouda, The Chief Persecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Ms. Miet Smet – President European Parliamentarians for Africa, Apostle Hayford Ikponmwosa Alike (OFR), outstanding African diplomats and many more.
This award started back 7 seven years ago to mark our yearly anniversary but the interest has grown to become a festival of some sort with the number of people attending the ceremony across the world.
