IK Osakioduwa And Vimbai To Host The AfricaMagic Viewer’s Choice Awards
AfricaMagic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCAs) organisers are hard at work creating a brilliant night of African film and TV glamour to celebrate the sensational talents of the continent’s rising and established stars.
Held in association with MultiChoice and sponsored by Amstel Malta, it has now been confirmed that charismatic Big Brother Africa presenter IK Osakioduwa and gorgeous Star Gist leading lady Vimbai Mutinhiri will host the first-ever AMVCAs!
“They were chosen because their experience and passion for the African entertainment scene makes them unique ambassadors for the event, capable of successfully engaging with both television viewers in 47 African countries and invited guests at the EKO Exhibition Centre where the AMVCAs will be held,” said M-Net Africa MD Biola Alabi.
“IK’s cool, calm professionalism combined with his effortless charm is clearly a benefit during busy live broadcasts, while the always optimistic and stylish Vimbai’s enthusiasm for lifestyle programming makes her the ideal co-host for what we are confident will be a glittering, glamourous night for African stars, industry insiders and audiences watching at home.”
Speaking on her role at the AMVCAs, Vimbai said she is honoured and excited to be part of the biggest initiative in the African film and television industry.
Now as IK and Vimbai prepare for the AMVCAs, audiences can get more info on the nominees by visiting the AfricaMagic website.
And it’s very important to remember…fans can also cast their votes on the AfricaMagic Viewers’ Choice Awards website for their favourite nominees in the six, viewer-voted, categories. So if you want your favourite actor or actress to walk away with an award on 9 March, you must vote!
