[Road To AMVCA 2014 ] The #AMVCA2014 Predictions. Who Will The Likely Winners Be?


Last year, Africa’s most popular Movie Network AfricaMagic introduced its awards to the most outstanding performers of the year. We saw Obi Emelonye, Otelo Burning, Oc Ukeje, Mercy Johnson and a host of other stars walk away with awards. We even had an uproar from Funke Akindele who failed to take any award home out of her 3 nominations. Well this year,  The AMVCA is back and so is Funke Akindele again with a record 3 nominations in one category. Will she be shut out again?

In preparation for the event which kicks off this evening at 5 pm, we have decided to bring you some of our predictions for the AMVCA 2014 in the popular categories.


Here  is how it works, Would Win means its almost 100% certain the artist will be voted for by fans, after all its a fan based award show (which explans why some not so impressive movies and actors/actresses are nominated).

Should Win means the nominated artist deserves to win in that category.

So, I guess that’s clear, so here we go. Do drop your comments and lets know who you are rooting for.
