Actor Adam Deacon turned up and hosted this inspirational, SMART DRESS event wearing a Raiders cap, Raiders jacket (both circa 1992), jeans and trainers. What was that all about? Did he just assume that because this was a ceremony honouring black youth, that there was no need to make an effort?

Also I said this before and I will say it again, the host of this particular event should have been a respected figure from the black community. He/she should have been a physical representation of those who were being honoured.

This year’s choice of host still confuses me. Apprentice winner and successful businessman Tim Campbell should host next year’s event.
