Twenty one year old Fiifi Essilfie Anaman, a Political Science student of the University of Ghana, is in contention for the prestigious CNN MultiChoice African Journalist of the Year.
The nomination comes after his article on the Disabled National Football Team, The Black Challenge, was selected by an independent panel of judges.
The annual award scheme accepts entries from journalists across the continent, awarding 13 prizes to selected journalists in categories such as Sports, News Bulletin and Arts and Culture. The best entry wins the Overall Best Journalist award.
Fiifi follows in a long line of illustrious journalists who have been previously nominated for this award, including Anas Aremeyaw Anas, Gifty Andoh Appiah and Joshua Anny.
