To be recognized in the fashion and style community is a big deal to patrons, who take their style as important as their daily meal.
As prestigious as our annual Glitz Style Awards is, it’s no surprise as our 2018 nominees are overwhelmed over their nominations. From the first time scorers to the one, two, three-time nominees, it’s been nothing but gratitude and a dream come true for them.
Nominated in the newest category on the blog, Rising Style Influencer of the year, Papa Oppong shows his surprise at his nomination and also discloses what his style stands for over the years.
“What a pleasant surprise! Thanks for the nomination @glitzafrica. Humbled as always. I’ve always used my personal style as a means of self-expression and encourage everyone irrespective of sex, age, sexual orientation or religion to embrace their uniqueness and take pride in the fact that there’s only one of you in this entire universe. Now…let me go look for something to wear! Me and my ‘blogger’ will be there “
He adds in his write-up rooting for his co-contender, Lharley Lhartey. “I’m rooting for my favorite girl @_lharley_!!! I love her!!! #glitzstyleawards #papaoppong #ghana #style,” wrote Papa.
The face of girl talk is also up for the Rising Style Influencer of the year. Facing off with three other GSA contenders, Lharley not only edges fans to help her win by voting for her, but then also talks about the number of times she everything seemed not right. According to the nominee, this nod is a big inspiration for her. She writes,
“A Girl’s dream finally coming through. There were times where everything didn’t make any sense. As if it wasn’t going to get better. The bad times, The down times, The times I felt lost. The times where I almost lost hope. The countless times I was told how unbeneficial all this was in this part of the world. The number of times I said “F**k it I am done” But the next minute I’ll be thinking of what t do next,” Lharley disclosed.
The style influencer breaks it down with a gratitude and a line of advice about how fulfilling it is to stay true to oneself.
“All I am trying to say is, THIS IS PURELY PASSION DRIVEN. I stay true to myself and my STYLE and I am always pushing myself to be aware of that and be ORIGINAL. This nomination is a big inspiration for me. The best feeling in the world I always say is ‘Your Efforts Been Recognized” not only does it make you happy, it also energizes you to work harder. I AM HUMBLED BY THIS. I wouldn’t have done this with you my followers. I am forever grateful 🙏😆❤. Kindly help me win this by liking this photo on @glitzafrica page 🙏🙏🙏😆😆❤. I love you all 😘😘😘😘😘 WE HAVE TO WIN THIS 🙏“.
