Last edition, one of our cover stars Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu promised us a blast at the 2015 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards, did they deliver? We will let the pictures from the nominees’ brunch (p. 22), nominees’ cocktails (p. 37), the red carpet (p. 26) and the awards proper (p. 39) do the talking. When it came to fashion, no doubt, Africa turned up the fashion ante a notch higher (at least most of them).
For our cover feature, we go down memory lane and catch up with some of our 2014 cover stars (p. 15). From winning more awards to attending film festivals, indeed they all have been busy. Our top 20 power list (p. 7) is a must-read. These personalities are the movers and shakers of Nollywood and our deputy editor Wilfred Okiche sheds light on what makes them influential.
Exciting things are happening in the industry. Africa Magic Igbo launches in April (p. 23). Then there is the power tussle between the incumbent President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Ibinabo Fiberisima and her rival Emeka Ike. Mike Asukwo’s cartoon ‘Story-Bored’ (p. 23) puts a different spin on it.
As usual, we have our regular staples: reviews (p. 24), Vox Pop (p. 14), celebrations (p. 13) and listings (p. 36).
