Africa Magic and MultiChoice in association with Amstel Malta, have announced the two hosts for the 2016 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCAs). IK Osakioduwa returns to host the awards for a fourth time and he will be joined by a new co-host, Minenhle ‘Minnie’ Dlamini.
“I am very excited to be on the biggest platform for celebrating talent in Africa,” said Dlamini.
“The AMVCAs recognise and celebrate film and television talent across Africa, and as a proud African, I am truly delighted to play a role in this celebration.”
Dlamini might be new to a lot of Nigerians but she is referred to as the ‘Diamond girl’ in South Africa. Minnie was in Nigeria this past week shooting two covers and press pictures for the prestigious awards show
In April 2013, Minnie ventured into the world of sport, ultimately spearheading the current trend of merging sport, entertainment and lifestyle. In the eight months that followed, she has had the honour of co-hosting some of the biggest sporting and lifestyle events in South Africa – maintaining her girly side while showing off her sporty and funky style.
”Team Minnie is delighted with the fact that The Minnie Dlamini brand is expanding in the right direction at a very rapid rate. International expansion has been in the works for a while and we are very excited about up coming projects and the association with the AMVCAs” – Jarred Doyle, Publicist and Brand Strategist
On the 5th of March, 2016, Minnie will take the stage alongside IK to present the 4th edition of the AMVCAs to viewers across Africa and the rest of the world. The AMVCAs will be broadcast live on all Africa Magic channels on DStv and GOtv.
