WATCH AS FEMI KUTI AND THE STARS OF AFRICA COME OUT TO CELEBRATE
· Our own actor Matthew Nabwiso has been nominated for the awards.
Legendary Nigerian Afro-beat King Femi Kuti, joined by his full band, will take to the stage on Saturday March 9 when the first-ever AfricaMagic Viewers’ Choice Awards is screened LIVE to over 50 countries on the African continent, on DStv and GOtv!
Representing Uganda in the awards, our own Mathew Nabwiso of the hostel series is among the lucky ones nominated in the AfricaMagic Viewer’s choice awards. He was nominated for best supporting actor in a drama serie for his role in Good Catholic Girl where he is up against three Nigerians and one SouthAfrican all in the same category.
Destined to be a glam night when the stars of Africa come out to shine, the festivities begin at 19:00 CAT with an exciting, live, one-hour red carpet pre-show to be hosted by massively entertaining television personality DenreleEdun, alongside AfricaMagic hosts Helen Paul and UtiNwachukwu (Jara), Dolapo Oni and EkuEdewor (53 Extra), Lawrence Maleka (StarGist) plus NicWang’ondu and Sarah Hassan (Mashariki Mix). Join them as they chat to the glitterati making their way into the venue and get a sneak peek at all the hot fashion and fun interviews.
Then get set…the AfricaMagic Viewers’ Choice Awards, hosted by Big Brother’s IK Osakioduwa and StarGist leading lady VimbaiMuntinhiri kicks off at exactly 20:00 CAT, live from Lagos!
The glittering two-hour and 30-minute gala is being held in association with MultiChoice and is headline sponsored by Amstel Malta. And if the entertainment for the night is anything to go by, it’s destined to be a must-watch extravaganza because joining Femi Kuti on the music line-up is gorgeous vocalist Tiwa Savage along with award-winning Kenyan Afro-pop outfit Sauti Sol.
