AMVCA Gist: The Good, The Bad And The Winners (photos)

The much talked about Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards went down
tonight at the Eko hotel and suites and it was INDEED a success.  It
began with Denrele Edun hosting the red carpet – he was a bit hyper
active but he handled it so well – at least well enough to prove that he
has gotten over Goldie’s death.
Oh by the way, in the early hours
of today, Denrele Edun honoured Goldie by tweeting  “Goldie and I had
already picked our outfits for the #AMVCA
but worry not Golden One, I’m wearing al d colors u chose for ur
elegant dress!” AND “Goldie and I were supposed to dazzle Africa at d
first ever #AMVCA
happening 2mrw but gurl, I’m reppin for u by hostin d Redcarpet LIVE!”
AND “Goldie and I had already picked our outfits for the #AMVCA but worry not Golden One, I’m wearing al d colors u chose for ur elegant dress!”

back to the main gist – you see, virtually all the celebrities were
interviewed on the red carpet but some of the notable ones (those that
stirred up controversies on twitter) were Geneveive Nnaji (thanks to her
stunning white gown that exposed her
tinyboobs, I even
heard Denrele asking why You no wear underwear), Desmond Elliot (his new
hair do…the dreads didn’t exactly fit him —–> that’s what
tweeps said on twitter), Denrele (for being hypertive), Oluchi (for
throwing a verbal bomb!!! she said “may the best one wins“)
and the many celebrities that were sweating on the red carpet, making
one wonder if the place was that hot – were the ACs not working?!

event proper kicked off at seven and it was hosted by IK Osakioduwa
& Vimbai Mutinhiri. Femi Kuti performed with his band on stage,
Iyanya performed his usual song – Your Waist,  Banky W performed Yes/No,
Tiwa Savage, Oh Tiwa, she honoured the late Goldie by singing her Say
My Name before performing her own song and then the Sautisol guys from
Kenya also performed.
And Yes, Vimbia the host changed like three
times -why? Even Genevieve changed her outfit too…Tunde Kelani, Olu
Jacob, Oc Ukeje, Mercy Johnson And Akin Omotosho were the Nigerians that
carried the day at the event.
And finally many of the female
celebrities were beautifully dressed in gorgeous gowns, Jackie Appiah,
Liz Benson, The New Tinsel Girl, Stephanie Okereke, Rita Dominic, Nadia
Buari…so many of them…they rocked!! oh btw, I forgot to add that Jim
Iyke’s outfit, made him look like a mordernized village headmaster! And
a quickie…someone just said “Who would ve tot Genevieve Nnaji and Funke Akindele would come back from the #AMVCA empty handed?”Yes oo,afta al d nominations.” Okbye!
