Full list of Africa Movie Academy Award Winners

The 2016 African Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) held on Saturday, June 11, 2016 in Port Harcourt.

The governor of the state Nyesom Wike and his wife Justice Eberechi Suzette Wike were in attendance and helped boost the ratings of the event.Other dignitaries at the ceremony include local and international movie stars, entertainment personalities as well as Nigeria’s minister for Culture and Communication Alhaji Lai Mohammed. The event took place at the Obi Wali International Conference Centre in Port Harcourt and was well attended. Sadly, the lapses at this year’s awards ceremony were highlighted as a result of poor planning, logistics issues and communication barriers.The organizers of the event  had started publicizing the 2016 event immediately after the 2015 edition, and so much was expected but the reverse was the case as the viewers at home expressed their disappointment on the social media platform.
