Lilongwe, Malawi: The Nigerian duo of Peter and Paul Okoye (P Square) have landed in Malawi ahead of their concert at Lilongwe Golf club this evening. They will perform as part of side events prior to the nomination gala night of the African Movie Academy Awards tomorrow.
The nominations are an event where films that make it into the 25 categories of the awards are announced ahead of the main award ceremony which is expected to be held in April this year. The exact venue and dates will be announced at a later stage.
This is the first time Malawi is hosting the AMAA’s nominations, in the past they have taken place in different countries like Burkina Faso, Gambia, Kenya, Ghana and South Africa.
According to AMAA’s director of administration, Tony Anih, the group has deliberately moved the nomination events from one country to the other within the continent in the last six years. This is aimed at encouraging the film industry in the various countries.
