The second edition of the Social Media Awards went down at the Safari Park last night in what would be termed as a glamorous event.

The evening started off with a cocktail where attendees got to meet, mingle and know more about each other away from Social media. Once the mingling was out of the way, dinner was served buffet style as entertainment was provided by dancers and comedians.

The chief guest of the event was chairman of National Cohesion and Integration Commission ( NCIC), Hon. Francis Ole Kaparo. He talked about the role social media has in day to day life and urged the influencers online to motivate others in a positive way.

It was a fantastic evening and some people got to see the faces of the accounts they follow online.
