The African Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards (AMVCA) experienced some table shaking.

The event, which held on September 1 at the popular Eko Hotel in Victoria Island, had controversial politician, Senator Dino Melaye in attendance.

Ik Osakioduwa, who was one of the hosts for the show, took time to throw a shade at the senator.

During one of the intervals between award presentations, IK looked in the direction of Dino Melaye and said “Do not worry maybe next year your movie ’11 hours in the wilderness' will get nominated for an award”.

Dino Melaye laughed, but it was obviously to cover the embarrassment he felt by the unexpected shade.

In July 2018, Melaye who represents Kogi West, was scheduled to be arraigned before the Magistrate court in Abuja for alleged gunrunning, but the trial could not hold due to the claims by Senator Ben Bruce, quoting Melaye’s brother, that he had been abducted by unknown gunmen.

After he resurfaced a day later Dino tweeted “I thank God once again for escaping another dangerous attack. I also thank Nigerians for their prayers and show of Love. Spent 11 hours in the wilderness traumatized but God preserved me. God is the best and in whom ONLY I trust. They will continue to try. WE SHALL OVERCOME!!!
