The Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards might have come and gone but some of the intriguing parts of the event will continue to linger in the memories of viewers and those present. From the Mavin’s stage flop, to Basketmouth’s epic joke about D’banj and Tonto Dikeh, Annie Idibia’s epic fall, the ‘Shoki’ remix that many didn’t see coming…sit back and enjoy.
Osas Ighodaro’s opening performance
Television presenter, actress and former Miss Black USA 2010, Osas Ighodaro, gave a special energetic dance display of a piece titled ‘I am Africa’. Her performance was what officially kicked off proceedings at the awards ceremony.
Desmond Elliot reveals love for RMD
Actor turned politician, Desmond Elliot, was one of the award presenters of the night. He awed all present when he openly and humbly crowned veteran actor, Richard Mofe Damijo, his mentor.
Comedian, Basketmouth dissed D’banj and Tonto Dike
In a joke that would obviously not go down well with his victims, D’Banj and Tonto Dike, Basketmouth alluded that the Kokomaster, and the first lady of his record label, DB, Tonto, otherwise known as Poko Lee, have been unable to produce hit songs or have the talent for singing, to the amusement of all.
On the MAVIN crew’s epic failure on stage
The MAVIN crew’s (Don Jazzy, D’Ija, Dr Sid, Tiwa Savage, D’Prince, Reekado Banks and Korede bello) performance of their street single, Dorobucci was indeed an epic failure. Remember that feeling that comes when your idol (s) lets you down? That is akin to how their performance went that night. First, it was the shortest performance of the night and the group couldn’t pull through without the presence of Tiwa Savage and Dr. Sid. It was a flop to say the least and it further revealed the group’s inability to cope with a live performance.
The spectacular Shoki remix
Not many know that most actors are also good singers. OC Ukeje, Femi Jacobs, Blossom Chukwujekwu and Gideon Okeke sure did an amazing Shoki acapella rendition to the admiration of all.
Annie Idibia’s dress becomes her albatross
First, it was Annie’s too tight gown which gave way as she walked into the venue of the event. Thankfully, the tear wasn’t at an embarrassing spot. The after party was worse she almost fell face flat if not for a kind Samaritan who quickly came to her rescue. Next time Annie, please wear a comfortable dress!
