According to Roxborough, best known as Sassydivva, the ceremony is significant as there not many of its kind.
“Having been in the industry for approximately 15 years, I realized there are a lot of women working really hard and it goes unnoticed. It was only right to create an official space to honor those who work 10 times as hard and give them a chance to show up and speak up,” Sassydivva told The STAR.
The ceremony will feature special performances by several of the awardees as well as Raine Seville and her daughter.
