 Osas Ighodaro’s opening performance

AMVCA Osa's 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

AMVCA Desmond Eliot

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

AMVCA Basketmouth

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

AMVCA mavin

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

AMVCA Annie Idibia

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!
