IK, Vimbai To Host AMVCAs 2014

Zimbabwe's former Big Brother Amplified Housemate Vimbai Mutinhiri will be among the hosts for this year's Africa Magic Viewer's Choice Awards (AMVCA) scheduled for March 8 in Lagos, Nigeria.

Vimbai will co-host the second edition of the awards set to be broadcast live on DStv and GOtv in over 50 countries in Africa, alongside Big Brother Africa host and radio personality IK plus Tinsel star Osas Ighodaro.

M-Net's Biola Alabi says: "IK and Vimbai did a tremendous job of hosting the inaugural AMVCAs. We are confident that with the addition of Osas, this dynamic team will once more keep this exciting and fast-paced live event running smoothly. With more viewer voted categories, the launch of the New Era Award and a sensational new stage, the latest edition of these awards should be bigger and better."

"From witnessing some of the greatest contributors in African film and TV being recognised for their phenomenal work, to watching fresh faces embarking on new journeys into the industry, the evening is a reminder of how much work, passion and commitment goes into film and TV. Plus the nominees have helped drive African film into contemporary culture and modernity in so many ways, so it will be great to see who takes the first New Era Award," said Vimbai.

A galaxy of African film and TV stars are expected to attend the glittering industry showcase, where a total of 29 awards in 27 categories will be awarded. 137 nominations from across 80 productions have been received.
