    if u’ve followed AMAA from the start u’ll know its fair enough. the most coveted categories are carted away by non nigerians! how many African countries actually churn out ggood scripts?d the very good ones are nominated. if u’v watched the nigerian movies nominated u’ll know that they arent in the league of ‘My father must marry me part 1,2,3″ or ‘sleepin giant Part 4,5,6.

    the figurine made it to the cinemas bcos it was well researched not becos of any Idumota, Oba Iweka road connection!

    Dear Cythia,

    Kenya, Ghana, Tanzania, South Africa, Mozambique, Egypt, Ethiopia, Uganda, Algeria, Malawi (all names listed above) are countries in Africa NOT Nigeria. Nigeria is a country in Africa!!!
    Goodluck to the Nominees, Bimbo, Ramsey and Majid are all great actors.

    I don’t even understand what the first two commenters are fighting about. It is a Nigeria-based award for African movies. From the entries, other african countries are pretty well represented. Seriously what;s the beef?

    AAMA has really been fair in its selection and winners and I believe the organisers deserve the support of any movie loving african. I watch a lot of movies and I’m still happy Funke Akindele won last year. Other “nollywood awards” wouldn’t have dignified yoruba films with a mention. This award is the only one that unifies the industry irrespective of language, background of the ators/producers/directors and I commend them for taking it beyond Nigeria. May the best works win this season!

    didn’t even know about these awards. kudos to the organisers. would like to see this integration of talent continue. hopefully francophone africa will get more recognition. some of the best african cinema comes from this end.

    Though my comment is a bit late, Ive got to say Im so happy [email protected] Funlola Aofiyebi-Raimi and Bimbo Akintola were nominated. They’re both great actresses bt are usually underrated by the public.
