Africa to America Productions LLC is a New York-based creative company committed to empowering Africans within the continent and in the Diaspora. It was incorporated in May 2012 by Dozie Atueyi, better known in Nigeria as the producer of the musical theatre group, Rhythm of the Black Man. In less than one year, the company has developed a series of events, geared towards facilitating bilateral relations between the continents of Africa and North America, to maximize mutual benefits. Some of the projects are the African Mayors & Local Government Summit, the MDG Ambassadors from Africa Conference, The Great Nigeria SME Trade Mission and the African Oil & Gas Expo.
The Mayor’s Recognition Award for developing the African Business Forum was presented by Mayor Wayne J. Hall of Hempstead, New York, to Dozie David Atueyi, CEO of Africa to America Productions, on January 31, 2013. This was in commendation of the organisation’s contributions towards establishing social and economic ties between Hempstead and the African Continent.
On January 31, 2013, another business forum was held, this time with delegates from Bayelsa State and Niger State of Nigeria. The event was very productive with presentations from several distinguished speakers such as Mayor Hall; Dr. Cheryl Hill; Bishop J. Justice Jones of Global Justice Ministries; Mr. Edward Bergman of Africa Travel Association; Hon. Michael Ogbolosingha, Executive Chairman of Yenagoa LGA, Bayelsa and Olatunji Oke, Editor-in-Chief of Lagos Indicator, co-organisers of the event.
Some of our projects are the African Mayors & Local Government Summit, the MDG Ambassadors from Africa Conference, The Great Nigeria SME Trade Mission and the African Oil & Gas Expo.
Over the last year, Lagos Indicator has partnered with Africa to America Productions in organizing events and educating participants on the role of citizens in good governance. At the African Business Forum in January, the Editor-in-Chief, Olatunji Oke, delivered a stirring presentation on “The Local Government Revolution”.
