AMVCA 10: ‘A Tribe Called Judah’ and ‘Mami Wata’ named among top contenders for Best Movie category (COMPLETE NOMINEE LIST)

Must Read

As anticipation builds for the 10th edition of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards, organisers have announced this year’s award categories nominees.

The nominee announcement aired on Sunday on all Africa Magic channels, stirring excitement among fans across the continent.

The awards ceremony, celebrating excellence in African film and television, is slated to take place on the 10th and 11th of May.

Busola Tejumola, executive head of Content and Channels, West Africa, MultiChoice, said, ‘‘The quality of entries received was simply outstanding, and the jury cut their work out for them in shortlisting the nominees. This year’s lineup is exceptional, reflecting the diversity and creativity prevalent in African cinema and television, and we can’t wait to celebrate them’’.

The organisers of the awards earlier called for entries (from 15 Jan – 14 Feb ), inviting filmmakers from across Africa whose productions had been publicly exhibited or broadcast from 1 December 2022 to 31 December 2023 to put in their work for possible nominations.

The performance awards have undergone streamlining this year; they now fall under the categories of Best Actor and Best Actress in a leading or supporting role.

There are now 27 categories, 16 non-voting, nine audience voting categories, and two recognition awards – Lifetime Achievement and Trailblazer Awards. The AMVCA panel of judges headed by ace filmmaker Femi Odugbemi will decide the non-voting categories.

The voting window is open until 28 April, allowing fans to support and honour the outstanding talent showcased throughout the year. You can vote on the Africa Magic website.

The 10th edition of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards is brought to viewers by Africa Magic in partnership with Amstel Malta as the lead sponsor.

Other sponsors include Pepsi, Promasidor and Martell, Tecno, Verve, QuickTeller, Tiger Beer, MTN and Indomie.

The award show is scheduled for the 11th of May with a live broadcast across all Africa Magic Channels on DStv and GOtv.
