The 47 year old Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations' Roll Back Malaria Partnership, who became the first Black child to appear on South African television was presented the award during the opening ceremony of the forum's annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland.
According to Hilde Schwab, co-founder of the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurs, "For many years Yvonne has used her voice to draw attention to the causes that will change the lives of millions, from ending apartheid to improving maternal and child health, Yvonne has clearly understood her opportunities to do good and the access her powerful voice allows, through both song and conversation, to reach and influence those who can act," she said.
In her acceptance speech, which was posted on her website, she said that "We here in this room are the global political and business elite and we have the power, the money and the knowledge to ensure that all people have access to prevention and treatment services to lead productive lives. We know what works, now we need to make it happen."

Held at a 5-star hotel, Deby according to press reports paid a whooping sum of $26 million dowry of which $25 million was paid to her father and the rest to her in the form of gold and jewellery.
Security at the classic hotel was beefed up very early in the morning and more than 100 police personnel were involved.
Though the couple were absent at the wedding (strange isn't it), the hotels guests were barred from getting close to the swimming pool area which witnessed the celebrations, President Bashir represented the bride while Deby was represented by a family relative named Abdo Ongi.
The bridegroom, in his 50's, has been married several times with about children. At some point, there were speculations that the pretty bride was forced into marriage, "No one has forced me into this marriage, we are not in the Stone Age," she defended.
Her father likewise denied charges that he sold his daughter for the money because of the age gap/for political motives.
But seriously guys, is $26million dowry not capital madness? Is her tissues, cells, organs and system made of gold? Their citizens wallow in acute poverty while they enrich themselves through corrupt means, infact, the fad is to spend money on women/marriage! Personally, I think there's more to this!!!

God knows what happened during the last el clasico which ended 2-2 but this picture (according to reliable source) depicts Real Madrid coach, Jose Mourinho after wednesday game waiting for the referees at the referee's exit of the Camp Nou to insult them, well, he eventually did. Taking his time to do this is what however makes it funny and awkward.
Needless to say Mourinho is this person who doesn't care whose ox is gored, no, not with 10 red cards in his face, he will still bare and acts his mind. I love him for this....but then, who doesn't like The Special One?

"The Past Came Calling" stars Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha, John Dumelo, Oliver Jolliffe, Penelope Bouchot Humbert, Demetri Turin and Class Act UK 2011 winner, Marie Kumba Gomez. The premiere will be held on the 17th of feburary at the Greenwich Odeon London and also in Nigeria during the Easter period.
Ruke explained further that, 'In London, the blacks are discriminated against, in terms of getting roles in major productions. What I did was to assemble them and advised that we should start off our own productions and by the time, do quality productions and do it long enough such that when the whites behold our productions, they will be forced to incorporate us in their own productions. That's how I started the 'Class Act'.
Speaking on his passion to help raise the next stream of national team stars, he said that, "I have always had a passion to help develop future talent – the next Jay Jay Okocha, Kanu or Ikpeba; and the only way to do this is to catch them young. There are a lot of talents in the country we only need to discover and nurture them and there is no other way than to start at the grassroots level. That is why I'm very happy to become a member of the BOT of YSFON where I hope to use my experience to help out."
