And the #AMVCA2018 Goes Too…

The 6th edition of the African Magic Viewers Choice Award (#AMVCA2018) took place yesterday at the Eko Hotel and Suites amidst the pomp and pageantry.
Watching it from the comfort of my bedroom didn’t take away the excitement and expectation from the award and while there were gremlins and the lack thereof motivating speeches, the award ceremony has indeed fulfilled one of the necessities of celebrating film in Africa.
The biggest winners for the night Tatu, Alter Ego, 18 Hours, and Isoken.
