The Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Award (AMVCA) ended moments ago with several spectacular moments.
Here are seven of our favourite moments from the 2018 AMVCA.
Ik Ogbonna’s 60 seconds drama with a female guest
Bisola Winning the #AMVCA2018 Trailblazer Award
Soon after her performance, Bisola was completely blindsided when she was announced as the winner of the Trailblazer award.
You could see the shook on her face when she arrived on stage to accept the award from Ireti Doyle.
Her jokes were characteristically funny, and when she was told she only had seconds more for her speech, she was so thankful.
Ngozi Nwosu’s selfie time

Cobhams’ Remix of One Hit
On stage to perform during the live show of the award was producer and singer Cobhams.
Host IK Osakioduwa had announced that the singer was there to perform his song “One Hit,” and, well, he did.
Cobhams gave us an on-the-spot remix, name-dropping everyone from Genevieve Nnaji to Banky W.
He got a standing ovation after his performance, and it was well deserved.

Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde Winning her First AMVCA
Almost unbelievable that it’s only the first AMVCA win for Nollywood giant Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde.
The actress had a phenomenal year with her movie “Alter Ego” which she described as a labour of love, and had her hands shaking as she won.
She was rooting for Mariam Kayode, the 11-year-old nominated in the same category, she revealed, but we’re so glad she won.
Charles Inojie Gives Us a Live Performance of “Na Dem Dey Rush Us”
Host IK introduced Charles Inojie as one of the funniest comedy actors in the country and he proved it!
We knew we were in for a treat when he walked in, and he delivered.
The actor did not only perform the “Na dem dey rush us,” line, he also gave us the iconic laugh.
No doubt the funniest moment of the night.
Lilian Afegbai’s emotional speech
