Multichoice has finally announced the 6th edition of the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards. 

The Director of M-Net West Africa, Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu, said:“Nearly one year after the last AMVCAs, we are pleased to announce the call to entry for the 2018 edition of the Awards.

“The African movie and television industry is brimming with exciting talents, and at Africa Magic we contribute to the industry.

“We give these talents the platform to showcase their skills and passion, celebrate their achievements whilst also encouraging them to continue honing their craft.”

For 2018 there are 27 categories in all, with seven open to viewers and 20 decided by the AMVCA panel of judges.

According to the Africa Magic's head of publicity, Efosa Aiyevbomwan, the event being postponed from its usual March date, was not as a result of lack of funds or sponsors.

He said that the delay is to prevent a clash with the planning, execution and broadcast of the ceremony, Big Brother Naija show, and the anticipated FIFA World Cup in June.

However, there are no details on the host or venue.
