    i am so glad that Leslie Pereira (Njinga: Queen Of Angola) won and the Timbuktu movie.
    She gives me hope that the story of my great great great paternal grandmother (Yaa Asantewaa of Ejisu Ashanti) will be told on screen someday. Leslie is so gorgeous and from the lil i saw in the trailer she did well. It is well subitlted and i cant wait to watch the full movie (Njinga: Queen Of Angola) as well as Timbuktu and i cant wait to watch.

    This really makes me happy that finally more african historical stories are being put in to movies. Dont wait for white hollywood to come tell our own stories (eg King of Scotland or Blood Diamond). Lets tell our own stories, If we concentrated on these hundreds of RICH true african stories and stop all the brazilian weave, fake contacts and fake phonet yankee wanna be bullshyt scripts we will be alright. 🙂 and win more international awards

      I’ve always being saying who’s going to tell Nana Yaa Asantewaa’s story. …I’m thinking of studying filmmaking because of that. I’m a Ga from the GA adangbe tribe but I’ve been fascinated by this warrior’s story. A woman that women should idolize and be inspired by.

    It still beats me how 30 days in Atlanta keeps getting reviews/ awards (I’m gonna pretend I don’t understand the effects of connection in high places). Poor acting, no content/ terrible over played stereotype story, lack of good direction and horrible delivery. Pardon my rants but I wasted my hard earned money buying that piece of crap.

      Ask again oh. The worst comedy movie i ever seen, so stupid
      Trust africans to award nonsensical mediocrity movies and yet expect the industry to be respect. I DONT RESPECT NOLLYWOOD AS MUCH AS I DO KENYA OR SOUTH AFRICA., sometimes i feel in nollywood is just a joke.

      Bet this come next year they will put them in the categories again, as welll as that damn overrated Oct 1st.

      Mschewwww. African Award shows are foolish.

      Aww thank you Felinda, i’m glad someone else share my view, mediocrity at its high but then I never take anything AMAA seriously. It’s become a monopoly to hype and reward its clique and frontliner such as Kunle Afolayan (He produces good movies tho, just a flatline actor)

      Thought I was the only one who saw October 1 and thought to myself, waste of time. I don’t even want to go into all that i thought was WRONG and BAD about that movie. I only give credit to two people. Sadiq Daba and Kehinde Bankole. Everything else nonsense.

    The venue isn’t nice! Looks like a cramped up ballroom.

    One thing I always say is, the best African films don’t come from Nollywood. If the Amaa lacked anything at all, it was diversity. It has always been in the interest or about nollywood all the time but I give them kudos to them for being diverse this year and going beyond nollywood. Also they really need to take this seriously, and I mean stop encouraging mediocrity like 30 days in Atlanta.
