The celebs all came out dressed to the nines and full of appreciation to the organisers of the brunch and awards. The major highlight of the event was the revealing of Amstel Malta’s plan to reward winners of the Best Actor (Drama), Best Actress (Drama), Best Comedy and Best Overall Movie categories with cash prizes, which brought smiles to the faces of everyone present.

O.C Ukeje, who is a nominee of the Best Actor category, couldn’t hide his excitement at the idea. According to him, it was a laudable one and deserved a lot of commendation;

“It’s a great feeling to know that our efforts do not go unnoticed. As actors and movie makers, we put in so much work into what we do, all in a bid to please our viewers and it feels absolutely amazing that we can be rewarded when we do it right. Big Kudos to Amstel Malta” he said.

    the award has already lost its prestige and credibility. it is going to be all about the money and not about the performance or the honour of being an amva winner.

    by the way can they change that ugly trophy they give to the winners.

    when u look at an oscar trophy or a grammy trophy or an emmy trophy, it looks so glamorous and expensive even tho they are metal coated in gold.

    pls they should redesign that amvca trophy.

    that trophy doesn’t look glamorous, it looks cheap, it looks like a sharp object that can injury somebody.

    While I commend Amstel Malta, I believe dey should have left the monetary announcement till the day of the event so dat the celebrities won’t work at getting people to vote for them cos of this. That aside and I know my contribution to dis industry is quite small, but 1million!!! Nigerian Breweries??? Organisers of Star Trek and Lagos Count Down! Come on!!! Amstel might not be ur top brand, but haba, we know how much u pay local n international musicians, n how much goes into AMBO n Maltina dance all shows, what is 1million? Biko raise d stakes if you can.

    If they are rewarding some winners with a cash prize of a million niara that means the hosts Vimbia and IK take home some lot of money….
