AFRICA MAGIC CELEBRATES A DECADE FUN & ANNOUNCES AMVCA'S 2014 NOMINEES

JOCELYN DUMAS


MICHELLE DEDE

UCHE JOMBO RODRGUEZ



One of the most watched channels on DSTV bouquet, Africa Magic clocked a decade old about 2 weeks ago and to celebrate the milestone they had a glorious celebration, at the Landmark Event Center, Lekki extension, Victoria Island, Lagos. 


It was a beautiful night and a double-pronged event that was aired live. First was the 10th anniversary dinner and entertainment & then the announcement of the nominees in the different categories for the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards 2014 (AMVCA 2014). As usual and as expected at occasions like this, many guests from all over came to celebrate with the brand, most especially those in the movie & entertainment industry on a Thursday which is a work day all dressed to the nines. 

MORE AFTER THE BREAK. LOADS & LOADS OF PICTURES AS YOU CLICK ON READ ME BELOW



Some of those that we saw at the event, were the likes of the very gorgeous and shapely Joselyn Dumas, hmmmm!!!! That backside can only be described in glorious terms, she came looking exquisite in her white outfit, but we thought she could have done more to hide those very visible panty lines. Apart from that she was the epitome of grace & gorgeousness. There were also the likes of Susan Peters in her silver sequined dress, Eku Edewor who at occasions like this always looks exquisite and changed twice. There was also Uche Jombo- Rodriguez in that black outfit with the 2 slits at the front. We didn't particularly love that outfit that much as we thought it would have looked better on a much thinner and more voluptuous(chest wise) person. As usual there were the likes of now single and mingling Toke Makinwa, the super gorgeous Damilola Adegbite in her yellow outfit, Isio Wanogho in her floor length dress, Kcee & Harrysong who later performed, the very dapper looking Praiz who opened the show, Ronke Oshodi Oke, Nigeria's best dressed comedian Julius Agwu was in the house, Uti Nwachukwu was there, Michelle Dede was the vision of splendor loved that iridescent outfit to bits, Karen Igho and her shape wore black, Alariwo of Africa, Dele Taiwo was there, suave actor Desmond Elliot looked super cool in suit but would have done far better in a white shirt or at best blue, Rukky Sanda wore black and finished it off with her black lip gloss looking like that character in Addam's family, super shapely Osas Ighodaro the gorgeous just says it all, Dabota Lawson in her cleavage bearing outfit looked hmmmmmmm........ don't know, Olumide & his expectant wife- Dakore Akande looked super cool together as always, we also saw Funlola Aofiyebi-Raimi, Olisa Adibua, Lala Akindoju, O C Ukeje, Ugonna Omeruo, Ebuka Obi-Ochendo, md MNET Nigeria Biola Alabi, who never ever disappoints. Chairman, Multichoice Nigeria Dewunmi Adewunmi was there welcoming all. We also saw the likes of Joseph Benjamin, Bukky Latunji, AY the comedian, Ivie Okujaiye, Abiola Atanda came wearing her usual sky-scrapper head-tie, Linda Ejiofor looked good as always, Gideon Okeke, Julie Odia- publisher WOW! magazine came as usual with her bff Uche, Yvonne Okoro was super delicious in her outfit, Ireti Doyle, Majid Michel, former top model Bisi Sowemimo came looking sweet in her black outfit  and very many others.
 

The event was anchored by the very fantastic & super suave IK Osakioduwa, the 10th anniversary show was hosted by the hilarious JARA duo of Uti Nwachukwu & Helen Paul; the other part of the day's event, the AMVCA's nominee announcement was hosted by the Star Gist presenters, the duo of Vimbai & Lawrence & they did a good job we must say. 


It was a great night of fashion, fun, entertainment & excitement and all the guests had a glorious time. 


HERE ARE THE NOMINEES & CATEGORIES FOR THE AMVCA 2014- According to the organizers of the event, there were over a thousand entries for the 2014 awards.  From the nominations in all the categories, it is obvious that Nigerian producers, directors and actors(male & female) need to up the ante and improve on their game or else others are ready to take over and sweep them off.

Uche Jumbo hell no to that dress
No No No, your legs, knees and feet all look wrong with the dress.
Just because a dress looks good on the manequine or runway does not mean it;ll look half as good on you.
