Despite the uncertainty that followed the 2018 edition of the AMVCAs, the event finally took place on the 1st day of September 2018. This year, I got to follow the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA 2018) from my bed and the couch. Since I was not working, I was able to follow all the celebrity style on Instagram and then watch the award ceremony proper on one of the Africa Magic DSTV channels. Here are some of our favourite moments;
The red Carpet looks:
This year, most of the attendees certainly put in a lot of thought into their looks. I was quite impressed and going by the talks on the gram, many certainly feel the same way. We have put up a list of some of the looks our Instagram community voted for. Do check them out here.
My best performances of the night were by Falz, Bisola and the legendary music producer, Cobhams. Cobhams did an AMVCA edition of his song, one hit. The remix which had mentions of some of Nollywood’s finest received a standing ovation by guests at the event and even from me, watching from home. I had goose bumps all over just listening to his voice. Next was the rendition of my immortal by Big Brother Nigeria’s Double Wahala Housemate, Bisola Aiyeola. I felt like she was getting teary and so did the people in the room with me, Infact, we all thought she was going to shed a tear but sis, I have to say, you are blessed with the gift of creativity. Finally is Falz my guy. Boy, your growth gingers me. He is a performer extraordinaire. See how he was giving us the ‘gbedu’ so effortlessly.
The Trail Blazer Speech:
There were speeches and there was the speech by Bisola Aiyeola who won the AMVCA 2018 Trail blazer award. Her joy was so contagious. Her speech was clearly unrehearsed yet my best. It just shows what it means to be truly surprised by God. She definitely deserves the award and we can’t wait to see all the amazing things she does before the next AMVCA.
