The sixth edition of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards is only a few days away and viewers can expect nothing less than a night of entertainment, glitz and glamour from the most prestigious celebration of film and TV talent in Africa. This year, the show promises to be even bigger with top contenders from across Africa yet again competing for honours in voting and non-voting categories.
With the primary focus of the event being the recognition and rewarding of film and television talent for their outstanding work, viewers can look forward to their favourite stars lifting awards for categories like Best Actor/Actress, Best Producer and the most coveted award, Movie of the Year.
In no particular order, here are a few reasons to look forward to the 2018 AMVCAs…
- The Hosts
Nigerian media personality, IK Osakioduwa will return to host the show alongside South African media belle, Minnie Dlamini. The duo hosted the last two consecutive editions of the show and had great synergy on stage.
Viewers can expect anything from comedic to tear-jerking speeches by the award winners as they render praises and appreciation to their fans and organisers of the award show.
- Live Performances
AMVCA not only brings together the best in television and film, they also create a platform for over-the-top live performances by your favourite music artistes. Let’s just say it’s a concert brought to you right in the comfort of your living room.
Undoubtedly a highlight of the event, second only to the receiving of awards, the AMVCA red carpet gathers the best of African fashion under one roof: from the classy, urbane and hip to the eccentric, unpredictable and even downright confusing, viewers can expect to be entertained straight from the red carpet and onstage.
- The 2018 AMVCAs
AMVCA boasts the largest gathering of African celebrities and socialites from all walks of life; beyond being a gathering of the continent’s best film and TV talent, it is also an event where top-tier professionals, celebrities, socialites and social media superstars gather to celebrate the best of African filmmaking.
