Our favorite part of the AMVCA’s!!!

For those who have been living under a rock, the 6th annual AMVCA’s went down on the 1st of September at the Eko Hotel and suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria and it was a delightful event! If you are anything like us, your favorite part is the red carpet fashion and style that the celebrities bring… and all the memes people make afterwards!! Before we go into that what are the AMVCA’s?

The AMVCA is an annual event by Multichoice and Africa Magic, which recognizes and honors film and television talents across the African continent. Winners emerge through votes by members of the public. Think of it as the Oscars of the African continent, because we have to celebrate our own right??!!!
