Africa’s most talked about movie award, Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA), might not hold in 2018, entertainment blog Pulse.ng has claimed.
The blog said the prestigious award organized by Africa Magic for five years since 2013, has shown no sign of returning for a sixth edition.
Accoding to the blog, the usual events that signal the approach of the award show – call for entries, nominee announcement, campaign for votes by nominees, and publicity by the organizers – have been missing.
AMVCA was founded in 2013. And upon its arrival, it found a spot alongside the already existing Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA).
Over the years, the ceremony has featured performances by prominent artists such as Mavin, Flavour, Davido, Psquare, and is broadcast live on all Africa Magic channels to viewers across Nigeria.
The annual attendance by so many A-List actors, punctuality and organization of the show, also aided its rise in the entertainment industry.
