2017 Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) to be hosted in Lagos on June 18


The Lagos State Government has called on the companies and multinationals operating in Nigeria and the state to support this year’s edition of the Africa Movie Academy Awards scheduled to hold on June 18.

Speaking at AMAA 2017 Sponsors Night last Thursday, the Commissioner of Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde who represented the State Governor, Mr. Akinwumi Ambode said that the government of the state is prepared to make the awards this year a very beautiful experience.

“We are very happy that AMAA is holding this year in Lagos and for the first time in its 13 years history Lagos is hosting it officially.

We are ready to host the best AMA Awards. We are using this Sponsors’ Night event to call on businesses and corporate Nigeria to come on board and support the awards through sponsorship and I am glad that the various marketing and branding opportunities which AMAA offers sponsors have been unveiled to us. We call on companies to buy into this and support this very successful continental award,” he said.

According to Ayorinde, the nominees for the awards will be announced at a gala night in Kigali from May 13-15 and it is AMAA’s tradition to move the nominations event from city to city in Africa.

“We are particularly happy about the synergy that AMAA has brought between Lagos and Rwanda. Lagos can learn from Rwanda and there is what Rwanda can learn from Lagos too,” he added.

In her welcome address, the founder of the award, Ms. Peace Anyiam-Osigwe thanked United Bank for Africa, Globacom, Sterling Bank, Airtel and other companies that had sponsored and supported AMAA in the past and charged them and others to come to take advantage of the brand activation opportunities that AMAA as a continental award platform offers sponsors.

Among those who attended the event were Erelu of Lagos, Dosumu Abiola, Chief Executive of Terra Kulture, Mrs. Bolanle Austen Peters, Nollywood actresses, Omotola Jalade Ekehinde, Doris Simon, Nollywood Directors/Actors, Fred Amata, and Kunle Afolayan.
