The OYA Awards stands for the Outstanding Young Achievers Awards and it is a platform for celebrating Young Nigerian Achievers in various fields of endeavors particularly areas of social and artistic interests.

In a country that does very little to encourage entrepreneurship and creativity within its borders, the awards are a very big deal. The OYA Awards had its maiden edition in Ile-Ife, Osun State, July 2015. It was heavily acclaimed and hence, it is heartily welcomed for its second edition.
