The rivalry between ex-Nigerian national Daniel Amokachi and fashion icon Lanre Da Silva Ajayi went to a whole new level on Sunday December 7 as both parties squared off on stage at The Future Awards Africa 2014.

The two team captains defended their passions before the stellar audience and spoke of the opportunity Malta Guinness had provided by creating a platform to take Naija further.

Looking every bit the fashionista, Lanre Da Silva was sporting one of her own designs while Daniel was not to be outdone in his smart suit.

They both expressed their delight for what TFAA stands for which is recognizing people who have excelled in the pursuit of their passions.

This is similar to the underlying theme of the Game On reality show created by Malta Guinness which is about fueling the rise of Naija through the passion of the people.
