Over the years, the 100 Most Influential Africans seeks to recognise the enormous yet unsung efforts of Africans living within the continent and in the diaspora.

The list cuts across all fields acknowledging achievements of individuals of different countries as well as highlighting developments across the continent.

In 2019, Kenyan World marathon record breaker Eliud Kipchoge was lauded for his historic achievement with former Citizen TV anchor Julie Gichuru also included on the list.
