#AMVCA2017 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards 2017…and the Winner is…

Source: Africa Magic Website

The long-awaited event took place on 4th March, 2016 at Eko Hotels & Suites, Lagos and hosted again by IK Osakiodu and Minnie Dlamini. The red carpet was awesome, featuring lots of artists full of glamour in the likes of Rita Dominic, Funke Akindele, Mercy Johnson, Richard Mofe Damijo, to mention but a few. The winner of The Voice Nigeria 2016 – Arese, sang beautifully and also, DNA (The Voice 2016 Twins) performed their debut single which was awesome. These guys – DNA of #TheVoiceNigeria are going places. They are so talented and Naija-blooded (my words) big time. I bet you, it is not by winning the show. They did not win THE VOICE Nigeria 2016, but they may end up hitting it BIG time! This their debut single is cool meeeehn! To cap it all, Waje the nightingale, hooted beautifully with her sweet, melodious voice. It was a collabo, and the song was done as a symbol of ‘I stand against Xenobophia’ Well…the main essence of the gathering was to witness the winners take their awards. As usual, there were lots of ‘…and the winner is…’. One could count a thousand and one of those words. Ah…Okey Bakassi blew it with a unique Igbo proverb: ‘nwanyi na-acho di na-agba oto arahu ura’. This interprets directly, that a woman seeking the fruit of the womb sleeps naked. True? Awww! I wonder what he meant by that anyway. I think we should give it up for Funke Akindele – Best Actress in Comedy. I’m liking her more, really. She’s really funny – ‘Cast and Kerewu’ for ‘Cast and Crew’, etc. Jenifa’s Diary has got it big time. I love what she said: “I don’t have a life. Thank God I married a very supportive husband…I practically live in the studio, putting this together…”
