The multi-talented, fan-favourite IK Osakioduwa returns to host the 2016 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCAs) for a fourth time and he will be joined by a new co-host, Minenhle ‘Minnie’ Dlamini.
Minnie just got back from Nigeria this past week where she was shooting two magazine covers – her first in Nigeria – and press pictures for the prestigious awards show.
In April 2013, Minnie ventured into the world of sport, ultimately spearheading the current trend of merging sport, entertainment and lifestyle. In the eight months that followed
, she has had the honour of co-hosting some of the biggest sporting and lifestyle events in South Africa – maintaining her girly side while showing off her sporty and funky style.
“I am very excited to be on the biggest platform for celebrating talent in Africa. The AMVCAs recognise and celebrate film and television talent across Africa, and as a proud African, I am truly delighted to play a role in this celebration” said Minnie in a statement.
”Team Minnie is delighted with the fact that The Minnie Dlamini brand is expanding in the right direction at a very rapid rate. International expansion has been in the works for a while and we are very excited about up coming projects and the association with the AMVCAs” added Jarred Doyle, Publicist and Brand Strategist.
On the 5th of March, 2016, Minnie will take the stage alongside IK to present the 4th edition of the AMVCAs to viewers across Africa and the rest of the world. The AMVCAs will be broadcast live on all Africa Magic channels on DStv and GOtv.
