Hosted by ace comedian and Nollywood actor, Okey Bakassi, the glamorous event was held at The Dome in Enugu State.
Speaking at the event, the Regional Director, M-Net (West), Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu, said: “Africa Magic is renowned for providing entertainment made for Africa by Africans. We are renowned for telling the African story, and giving African entertainers a platform to show the world what they can do. We have demonstrated this with our channels, including the indigenous language channels which continue to promote the richness of Nigeria’s different cultures beyond the nation’s borders and we are continuing this trend with the Africa Magic Igbo channel.”
Pete Edochie, who opened the event with the traditional, symbolic breaking of kolanut, hailed Africa Magic for their tenacity in making sure the Africa Magic Igbo dream came to reality. Pete Edochie, who spoke entirely in Igbo, was assisted by Kenneth Okonkwo in the opening prayers and urged Igbo filmmakers to take advantage of the new channel to produce rich and enduring Igbo content.
The star studded event featured elegant performances by an Igbo traditional troupe and stellar performances from artistes including Chidinma, Phyno, and Flavour, who closed the event with a medley of his hit songs.
