AMA Awards on this weekend!


February 23, 2011 – Nairobi will be hosting the AMAA (Africa Movie Academy Awards) nominations party on February 25-26 and the biggest Nigerian and Ghanaian movie stars will be in attendance.

Practitioners from all the participating countries of the awards scheme are expected to converge on the East Africa nation for the announcement of the 2011 AMA nominations.

Some of the stars who have confirmed attendance include Rita Dominic, Mercy Johnson, Ini Edo, Mike Monsuruye, Jackie Appiah, Lynda Forson, Kate Henshaw Nuttal and Mike Ezeronye among others.

In a statement released by the Director of Administration of the award body, Mr. Tony Anih the Nairobi event is being planned to connect with the East Africa block that comprised about eight countries which include Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Malawi, and others. He comments: “East Africa has made very strong showing and presence in AMAA since we started particularly in the last three editions. Apart from submitting films for the awards film makers and allied practitioners from these countries have come to Nigeria to attend the awards.


“The AMAA secretariat felt it is time to make them have a feel of the award by taking the Nomination Night to them and thereby increasing the AMAA brand visibility in that region of Africa. Nairobi is central to East Africa and it is the economic hub of the region. It will be easy for people in East Africa to come to Nairobi. It will be a great Night,” he added.

Another feature of this year’s nomination Night is a concert that will follow it on Saturday February 26 at Carnivore Gardens in Nairobi featuring P-Square, J. Martins and other top artistes from Kenya and South Africa. According to Mr. Anih the concert will be an icing on the cake for the nomination adding that the footprint of AMAA will be so visible in East Africa after the two-legged events that participation in the award from the region will double in subsequent years.

    Every sane person in Kenya and all over the world wants to see justice done for the victims of PEV. The violence that was visited on the victims was callous, unprovoked and unjustifiable. However, why is ICC not interviewing the real victims to understand what really happened but relying on evidence from unaffected parties? Isn’t this a ground for hearsay among others?
    Why is ICC depending on evidence from partisan sources? Even a few letters from Odm’s big wig apparently informs part of their understanding of PEV.

    Whose justice is ICC seeking? Raila’s Odm’s? The coaxed witnesses?

    They should come out clean and state for all to know. Hiding behind “seeking justice for victims” isn’t washing going by the way they are dealing with the real victims.

    Please forbear the ignorance that my query exposes, yet am driven to ask & comment as follows….. How were the accused confirmed for full trial with OTP having such huge gaps of information that it has to plead with GoK to release it to them? Would it not have been easier to accept GoK formally as a friend of the court in order to facilitate the info required by OTP? GoK appeal to be friend of the court was repulsed by Prosecutor Ocampo and Judge Ekaterina. Trial evidence threshold is much higher than confirmation hearing evidence threshold. Why would a government in pursuit of sovereign interests share info with OTP when OTP has shown such disdain and disrespect for it in the first place?
