BlackHouse Media (BHM) has saluted Nigerian media and tech executive Alex Okosi after he was named as one of Britain’s 100 Most Influential Black People in the Powerlist 2022.
Now Managing Director, Emerging Markets, YouTube (EMEA), Okosi formerly helmed Viacom’s African operations, including music channel MTV Base.
The Powerlist is an annual event that recognises the UK’s most powerful people of African, African-Caribbean and African American heritage.
It honours outstanding men and women across Media, Tech, Business, the Arts, Fashion, Design, Entertainment, Education, Science, Politics, Public Sector, Law, Religion, and Sport. Past Powerlist honourees have included racing driver Lewis Hamilton, philanthropist Dr. Mo Ibrahim, actor John Boyega and footballer, Raheem Sterling.
Congratulating Okosi on the landmark recognition, BHM’s founder Ayeni Adekunle said, “It is incredible to see a Nigerian business icon like Alex making the Powerlist, only 18 months after his move to the UK, and wonderful to see his business acumen and success recognised and appreciated among the UK’s most influential people”.
