On the weekend Toronto Raptors President and General Manager Masai Ujiri honoured his hero, Nelson Mandela.

The 2nd annual ‘The Giant of Africa event was held on the second anniversary of Mandela’s passing.

The event not only paid tribute to the man who influenced so many lives but also others in our community who continue to build on the legacy by inspiring positive change. At the same time supporting the Nelson Mandela Foundation and Ujiri’s not-for-profit organization, Giants of Africa.

There was so much star power on the red carpet. Ivory Coast soccer star Didier Drogba, Damon Allen, CFL Legend, Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director, Toronto International Film Festival, Jully Black, International model Winnie Harlow and NBA legend (former Raps GM) Isiah Thomas.

The event featured a panel discussion inside the Toronto Raptors practice court before the big Raptors’ game against the 2015 NBA Champion Golden State Warriors, which ended in an incredibly close win for GSW 112-109.

Take a look at the social media highlights for the Giant of Africa event.
