It was a long night of fun, camaraderie, and swashbuckling on Saturday, June 24, 2017, in Kigali, Rwanda when Africa Movie Academy Awards hosted Rwandan Celebrities, business executives and their Nigerian counterparts during the 2017 AMAA Nominees party in the East Africa Country.
The Nominees party is a precursor to the main awards which will hold in Lagos on Saturday, July 15, 2017, at the Eko Hotel Convention Centre and it is being officially hosted by the Lagos State Government as part of a year-long celebration of Lagos at 50.
The party which took place under a well-decorated marquee at Camp Kigali was opened by Arthur Nkusi, a Rwandan stand-up comedian who wowed the ecstatic audience of revellers with his rib-cracking jokes after which he called The Maestros, a Nigerian live band from the stable of Bolanle Austen-Peters creative enterprise.
The crowd gyrated, sang along and danced to many popular hit songs from Nigerian pop stars performed by the band. It was a pulsating night of celebration of the nominees into all the categories of the continental awards.
