AMVCA7 (2020): Here’s The Full List Of Winners

Awards, Nollywood
AMVCA7 Winners - Living in Bondage dominate

I am still mad at Multi-Choice, Mnet, Africa Magic, Amstel Malta and the web designer for the terrible Africamagic website which disenfranchised me. For days and nights, I fought and pushed but I couldn’t register to vote for my favourite nominees. But this is not the day I fight the oligarchy that forced these winners on me. Tonight is about the winners at the AMVCA7. The biggest winner of the night was “Living In Bondage: Breaking Free” with 3,455 awards.

Here are the winners. The list has all the nominees with the winners marked (WINNER). Funke Akindele went home with her fourth AMVCA and Swanky JKA had cause to come on stage and shout “somebody say Hallelujah”. Mercy Eke won the Instagram-voted Best Dressed Female while Mike took home the Best-Dressed Male. It was a night for former Big Brother Housemates. It was an enjoyable night with brilliant hosting from IK Osakioduwa and Amina Abdi Rabar, banter from Cobhams Asuquo, and electricity from 2baba himself. So much more. Summary cannot work. Words can never repeat the night. You just have to turn back the hands of time.
