Kalpesh and Shailesh Solanki and the entire Asian Media Group family are saddened to announce the loss of our founder and Editor-in-Chief Ramniklal Solanki CBE on 1st March 2020.

Mr Solanki was a giant in Gujarati journalism and a pioneer in ethnic media in the UK and USA since 1968. He hosted his first event in the 1970’s to host the then Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in London and created many events to celebrate and bring recognition to the Asian community when it was unfashionable to do so starting with the Asian Trader Awards in 1989 and GG2 Leadership Awards in 1999 to promote and recognise talent amongst all ethnic communities.

As we mourn and celebrate Mr Solanki’s life we are postponing the Asian Business Awards from 20th March to Friday 19th June .
