After being named Sportsman of the Year at the British Ethnic Diversity Sports Awards in April, Raheem has been acknowledged once again for his efforts in tackling racism.
Our client’s status has continued to grow in the last five months, showing greater prominence as a profile both in and outside of sport.
Now, Raheem has been nominated with the likes of John Barnes, Stephen Fry and Paul O’Grady as the 2019 Celebrity of the Year at the National Diversity Awards.

The awards board have acknowledged Raheem as a ‘trailblazer’ in acting as a role model for youngsters who have experienced racial abuse.
From the England icon’s Instagram post in December to meeting 13-year-old Ethan Ross, a Manchester City fan that suffered from racial discrimination at school, this latest nomination couldn’t be more deserved for Raheem.
In partnership with ITV news, the awards ceremony will be held at Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral on Friday 20th September.
We at Colossal Sports Management wish Raheem the best of luck in the hope that he takes home the award.
