ENSPIRE Contributor: LaShonda Thompson
The Dad Gang and CÎROC VS Fine French BRANDY have teamed together to honor the amazing fathers who are making a difference in their communities through their unique and outstanding roles at the inaugural ‘Very Special Dad Awards.’ In today’s modern culture, fatherhood takes on numerous forms depending on the family and generation.
On Saturday, June 12th, the Dad Gang & CÎROC VS Fine French Brandy celebrated dads who are changing the narrative of fatherhood through content. In the Inaugural ‘Very Special Dad’ Awards, dad’s who were honored included, D’Anthony Ward, Devale Ellis, Donte Palmer, Kier Gaines, Jason Wilson, Muhammed Nitoto, & others.
It’s June, which means it’s National Men’s and Black Music Month, almost summer, and time to celebrate our dads for Father’s Day!
